Calling All Photovoltaic Enthusiasts for the Middle & High School Competition
This year, the most important photovoltaic conference in North America is taking place online June 14-19. Instead of the usual poster presentation of the semester-long projects, Middle and High school students are invited to participate in two competitions to showcase their solar projects and ideas:
1) Solar Energy 90-second Video Pitch Competition
2) Solar Future Narratives, a storytelling competition
Awards will be available on both competitions for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. A selection of the submitted videos and narratives will be presented at a session during the online conference, during which winners will also be announced. This session of the conference will be free to the public. More information of date, time, and link to join forthcoming.
Click on each of the categories above to see more details of each competition, and direct all your questions to SolarYouthScholars@ieee-pvsc.org.

This year, the most important photovoltaic conference in North America is taking place online June 14-19. Middle and high school students are invited to participate by sharing their vision of what a future powered by solar energy might be like. Imagine a future where most of the energy we use is produced by the power of the sun. Create your own story that is rooted in the lives and the communities you care about. Consider the ways that human societies and energy systems are connected. How would a solar energy future affect your school, your neighborhood, your family and friends? How would global climate change be improved or worsened?
1st place competitors will receive $500, 2nd place $300 and 3rd place $200. There’s also an opportunity to win honorary mention.
