YCSD Hosts Second Annual "Energy Throw Down"
From April 24 - May 24, 2013, students and staff from throughout the Yorktown Central School District will be participating in the second annual competition to see which building can save the most energy. All are invited to brainstorm ways to conserve energy and reduce the carbon footprint. All school calendars have suggested ideas, including turning off water, using eco-friendly water bottles, reusing copier paper and more. On the final day, a district-wide “Earth hour” will be held where all will be asked to turn off lights, computers, and other electronic equipment to help conserve energy. In June, the electric bills from the previous months will be compared to see which building team saved the most energy, and the winner will be presented the “Green Light Bulb” award. Last year, Mohansic Elementary won the coveted award. Which school will save the most energy this year?
