En­ergy-ef­fi­ciency fund for schools

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Hutt Mana Char­i­ta­ble Trust is seek­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from pri­mary and in­ter­me­di­ate schools for a $25,000 en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency fund. Schools can sub­mit project ideas that in­volve stu­dents, ex­plore en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and con­ser­va­tion, and have spe­cific and mea­sur­able out­comes. Projects that have ed­u­ca­tional ben­e­fits and save schools money are en­cour­aged. Grant amounts start at $500. Ap­pli­ca­tions close at 5pm on March 4. The fund is an ex­ten­sion of work Hutt Mana Char­i­ta­ble Trust al­ready does to spread the en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency mes­sage to young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies in the area, says trustee Sarah Dow. Last year the trust dis­trib­uted $20,000 to col­lege leavers plan­ning to study en­ergy ef­fi­ciency. See www.hmct.org.nz.
