“Life in the GREEN Lane”

A K-12 Essay Contest

 

 It’s hard to imagine life without cars, buses or trucks.  They allow us to travel to new places and deliver supplies across the country.  However, cars and trucks account for almost 80% of the carbon pollution that goes into our air.  That’s a lot of pollution coming from something many of use  and depend on every day.  Today, many car companies are looking toward the future and starting to live life in the “green” lane by manufacturing fully electric cars.  Electric cars fuel up by using the same source of energy we use to power our homes.

There are many benefits that electric vehicles have to on energy usage and on tour environment.  In 1000 words of less, tell us what effect living life in the “green” lane  can have on energy and the environment?

Kindergarten: Can draw a picture with 2-3 sentences about the concept.

 

      Elementary School (grades 1-2)               Middle School (grades 6-8)

           Elementary School (grades 3-5)               High School (grades 9-12)

 First, second, and third place winners will be awarded in each category.  First place winners will receive $75, second place $50, and third place will receive $25.00.  Kindergarten winners will receive a $10.00 Award for all places instead of the above prizes.
