Twelve SVVSD schools to compete in this year's ReNew Our Schools Competition

The ReNew Our Schools Program is an energy conservation competition where schools compete to win $20,000 for energy retrofits for their school. Schools compete by conserving electricity in school and in homes in their community. The competition empowers students to learn real-world energy concepts, work with local energy experts and become leaders in their school community.

St. Vrain Valley School District, in partnership with the Center for ReSource Conservation, has selected the following 12 schools for the Spring 2014 ReNew Our Schools Competition.
