Just Energy Foundation Presents the International Sustainable World (Engineering Energy Environment) Project Olympiad (I-SWEEEP) Award
October 24, 2017 - Houston, TX
Just Energy was proud, once again, to participate as a sponsor at Houston’s 7th annual Energy Day Festival. Attended by over 30,000 guests this past Saturday at Sam Houston Park (setting an attendance record), the Festival was hosted by Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that seeks to improve consumer understanding of our nation’s energy security.
Energy Day is Houston’s largest free annual festival that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). A family event that brings together students, educators, and business leaders, attendees could explore over 55 exhibits highlighting energy generation, interactive technology demos, and exciting vocational opportunities in the industry. The Just Energy booth was buzzing as attendees had a chance to learn more about Just Energy, interact with company representatives, and participate in games and giveaways. Students and teachers were also awarded at the Festival for their achievements in STEM-related competitions. The Just Energy Foundation was pleased to present a financial reward to the winning students of the International Sustainable World (Engineering Energy Environment) Project Olympiad (I-SWEEEP) Award at a special on-site ceremony. Presented by Mark Eddings, Just Energy’s Senior VP and Regional General Manager, US South (pictured), the reward recognizes the students’ STEM achievements.
“As a leading North American energy management solutions provider and specialist in sustainable options, we’re thrilled to be a part of this educational and fun-filled event in our own backyard,” says Deb Merril, Just Energy’s Co-CEO. “Innovation and rapid technological transformation is the way of the future, and the hub of innovation lies in STEM. By encouraging this area of focus for youth, we are nurturing next generation architects and groundbreakers that can bring unique perspectives for new ideas and problem solving in everything from economics, to energy, to the environment”.
I-SWEEEP draws hundreds of the brightest STEM-focused students in the world together each year to compete in a fun and collaborative environment.
