On March 18, 2014, winners of the Mojave Environmental Education Consortium’s (MEEC) first video contest, along with their families and friends were invited to an awards ceremony at High Desert Power Project in Victorville. The local nonprofit and MEEC Sponsor High Desert Power Project joined forces to present the contest for students in grades K-12 throughout the High Desert. Winners of the “Rethink Recycling” contest received special certificates and gift cards for their creative and thought provoking ideas on recycling. After the awards were presented, winners and their guests were treated to a private tour of the Victorville facility. MEEC provides environmental education resource materials, workshops, bus field trip mini-grants, and much more to High Desert educators at no charge. MEEC is funded by more than 30 private and public sponsors, including High Desert Power Project.
