To increase student participation in the 2014 Energy Challenge, which is running under the theme “student emPOWERment,” 15 residence halls will be competing for cash prizes in three categories: greatest reduction in an electric-heated building, greatest reduction in non-electric-heated building and building with greatest participation.
Dickinson College students, faculty and employees can take part in this year’s Energy Challenge beginning March 17 with the following themes and events:
- Week 1: Power Down (March 17, 6 p.m., Dinner in the Dark, Cafeteria)
- Week 2: Unplug (March 29, 8 p.m., bonfire, Morgan Field)
- Week 3: Go Outside (April 11, 6:30 p.m., finale event at Relay for Life, Kline Center)
- Check out the 2014 Energy Challenge launch video
This year the challenge can be followed live through Dickinson’s Building Dashboard, where students can make their commitments and anyone interested can see real-time energy-usage data for 12 buildings and competition standings for the participating residence halls.
