The Generation Green Energy Performance competition is back – and is bigger and better than ever before!  There’s now eight prizes up for grabs worth up to £100,000 to transform your school with energy saving technology.

Schools in Scotland, Wales and across the North West and Yorkshire and Humber can join in the fun, and the competition is open to pupils aged 7 – 14.

Using National Curriculum approved learning resources across science, geography and PSHE/citizenship subjects, this competition will spark pupil’s interest in energy sources and sustainability – as well as inspiring the energy innovators of the future.

Pupils are challenged to design their very own Eco-School, and finalists will be chosen on their creativity, innovation and fun. The new deadline for entries from Scotland is midday on the 29 May 2015 and 5 June 2015 for Yorkshire/Humber, North West and Wales.

Generation Green Energy Performance LIVE Finals

16 shortlisted finalists from the Eco-School competition will be selected to compete at one of four action-packed live finals in your region.  Pupils, with the help of a specialist dance teacher, will compete on our energy-generating dance floor to battle it out for the Energy Makeover prizes.

The winning schools will be chosen based on the creativity of their performance – and of course, the amount of energy they create.

Events will be held at the following locations and dates, with four schools (two primary and two secondary) dancing it out for the Energy Makeover prize.

  • INTU Braehead, Glasgow - 12th June
  • White Rose Shopping Centre, Leeds - 26th June
  • Arndale Shopping Centre, Manchester - 3rd July
  • Cardiff - 10th July

The big prize

The winning schools will receive up to £100,000 worth of energy saving technology as part of an Energy Makeover.   Not only will you be able to save money on energy bills, the makeover will also help the environment and get pupils motivated to become energy efficient at school and at home.

Winning schools will have the prize tailored to your specific needs.  With solar panels, heat pumps and insulation, as well as an interactive display screen so pupils can monitor the school’s energy usage – there’s lots of exciting energy saving prizes to be won.  We’ll also give you tips about how teachers and pupils can save energy in the classroom.
