2021 Virtual Solar Cooking Rules and Guidelines 

This year’s event will take place virtually.  Individual students in grades 4-12 will showcase their knowledge of solar cooking by building a working solar oven from materials that they already have around their houses.  Students may work with others students from their own house hold.

To be eligible to compete, students must attend  grades 4-12 within MEEC boundaries. Each student must submit a detailed  digital project (ex. PowerPoint)  documenting their cooker design, recipes and cooking process.

Student registration forms must be received by  Thursday, April  1, 2021. Student projects must be received by May 7, 2021 in order to be considered for judging.

At the Virtual Solar Oven challenge, three awards will be given in each grade division. Grade Divisions are: 4-6; 7-9; and 10-12.  Students who work with another student in their household will be judged in their highest grade level of all participating students.  

 Big Cash Prizes!

Awards are:

1st: $500; 2nd: $300; 3rd: $150
