The Rewards

Saving energy is its own reward – after all, the more resources we save, the better our planet is for future generations.

The My Energy Kit program strives to make energy conservation even more rewarding through cash prizes for participating schools, teachers, students and families! This year our rewards include:

  • $50 Teacher Rewards through the My Energy Kit Classroom Challenge
  • $1,000 - $2,500 School Grand Prizes for Elementary Schools and Middle/High Schools
  • $1,000 Family Prize Drawings

Click each reward to learn how you can win.

This year, we’re challenging classrooms to meet the goal of 20 kit requests as a collective team. Every classroom that reaches 20 eligible* kit requests will automatically receive $50.

Elementary classroom teachers are encouraged to meet the goal of 20 requests from their classrooms, or together with colleagues if their classroom sizes are less than 20. Middle school, high school and specialist teachers who teach multiple classes or run student organizations can earn $50 for every 20 eligible kit requests from their students.

To participate, teachers first must register to get a Classroom Code. To count an Energy Kit request toward these rewards, the request must reference that Classroom Code. The My Energy Kit team tallies requests toward particular classrooms using that Classroom Code, updates teachers on their status, and lets them know when they have met the goal and earned $50!

The My Energy Kit Classroom Challenge runs from July 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022.
