SUBJECT:       Energy Savings Tip Contest for All Maine 4th, 5th, and 6th graders



            On behalf of Governor John E. Baldacci, I invite each of your 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students to participate in this year’s Energy Savings Tip Contest.  The Governor will award prizes for the best energy saving ideas in two categories for each grade level:  1) how to save energy in your own home, and 2) how your school can save energy. 


            Students are encouraged to submit 1 or 2 tips for saving energy in their homes and schools.  October is Energy Awareness Month, a good time to focus on how we can save energy as we head into the winter heating season.  Contest entries must be submitted by October 13th to Joy Adamson, State Energy Programs, State House Station 18, Augusta, Maine, 04333-0018 or students may e-mail their energy saving ideas to with the words Energy Contest in the subject line.  Please remind them to include their name, school, address, and grade level with their submission.


            Good luck to all participating students!
