NEED Awards

Students from Morningside Elementary traveled to Washington, DC for the NEED Youth Awards conference and were awarded the 2019 Elementary School of the Year at the State level and a 2019 National Finalist Award. Their project was focused on the theme of Kids Teaching Kids About Energy. While at the conference, the students enjoyed meeting students from other states, touring DC, and cruising down the Potomac River.

The mission of the NEED Project is to promote an energy conscious and educated society by creating effective networks of students, educators, business, government and community leaders to design and deliver objective, multi-sided energy education programs. To learn more, visit
