New Haven School Gets Grant From Utility

Congratulations are in order for students at  New Haven's Mauro-Sheridan Interdistrict Magnet School for Science, Technology and Communications.

An entry submitted by students at the school came in second in Connecticut Light & Power's Youth Video Contest. The video "Light and Power" earned the school a $1,000 grant from CL&P.

The contest required middle school students to create a video of 90 seconds or less demonstrating the importance of safe, reliable energy to Connecticut, our communities and our daily lives.

Students from The Sherman School in Sherman took first place and received a $3,500 grant for their video, "What Would We Be Without CL&P?" 

"Congratulations to the winners and all of those who submitted videos," said Jim Muntz, president and chief operating officer of CL&P.  "Everyone did a great job communicating in some very interesting and creative ways how vital electricity is.  The judges had some tough choices to make."

How did CL&P get the word out about the video contest initially. This could have been a real learning initiative for many science teachers in CT. Will they do it again? I hope so.
