Volunteers Needed for the "Houston: Energy Center of the Future" Competition  

HOUSTON, TX - The Houston: Energy Center of the Future Competition is presented by the Harris County Department of Education. It allows Houston-area 8th – 12th grade students the opportunity to imagine how Houston will use energy in the year 2050.  Participating students work in teams of four to research Houston, learn about the energy industry, and create scale models and public service announcements showing how their plans will make Houston a more economically-profitable, environmentally-sound, and consumer-friendly city. 

The program is seeking volunteers to participate in Speaker Visits to Schools. One volunteer will be sent to each of the participating schools for a brief and informal conversation about Houston, the energy industry, and energy-related careers in Houston that our students might want to consider in the future.  The program will provide each visiting speaker with a list of potential questions and topics for discussion and will facilitate the visits with the schools. The speaker visit will take about 30 minutes – 1 hour and will occur during the week of March 24, 2008.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email Alicia Dodge at ADODGE@mariner-energy.com
