Today marks the start of the 2nd annual Two Weeks to Take Charge Energy Challenge in four Steamboat Springs schools.

For the next two weeks kids from Strawberry Park and Soda Creek Elementary Schools, and Steamboat Springs Middle School and High School have been tasked wit the challenge of trying to save the most energy of all four schools.

The energy statistics will be compared to last year at the same time period and the winning school will receive a success party! So let’s turn off those lights and save a watt!
