Three St. Lucie Public Schools were represented in Washington, D.C. last month at the Youth Awards Program for Energy Achievement. Mariposa Elementary, Morningside Elementary, and Lincoln Park Academy attended the N.E.E.D. (National Energy Education Development) Project festivities. NEED students understand energy. They are local experts and leaders in community discussions on energy use, energy efficiency, and new energy technologies. Students learn how to design buildings better to maximum energy efficiency and to keep our buildings healthy. NEED students are the future of the energy workforce. Students interested in engineering, science, economics, environmental sciences, law, geology, and a host of other disciplines have a role in the energy industry.
