Michigan students in sixth through 12th grade are invited to find ways to use solar energy in their schools as part of a statewide contest. “My Solar School Contest” is a collaborative project of the Ecology Center in Ann Arbor and the U.S. Green Building Council Detroit Region, in partnership with Generation 180, Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association, EcoWorks and the U.S. Green Building Council of West Michigan Region. More than 5,500 schools across the country are investing in solar installations and educating students about clean energy.
