Youth Energy Conference & Awards
Copyright© 2022 | The NEED Project | All Rights Reserved.
NEED encourages and rewards student leadership and innovation by sponsoring an annual Youth Awards Program
for Energy Achievement. Schools participating in NEED’s programs are invited to submit digital portfolios of
their energy activities (submission is free!). Exceptional teachers and students are recognized for their
efforts at the state and national level.
For our 41st year, NEED student interns and youth staff planned a first ever hybrid offering for school groups
who could come safely in person to do so, but also allow for a fun and rewarding opportunity to those who
could not. We had student groups join us in Washington, D.C. and online via Zoom to work on hands-on energy
challenges in small groups, engage in contests, games, hear from guest speakers and of course, the annual
awards ceremony to recognize their hard work.
Interested in having your students submit a project for NEED’s National Youth Awards Program for Energy
