The EmPower Solar Student Competition encourages Long Island and New York City high school students to discover and communicate the benefits of solar power through a multi-faceted competition combining science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and creative components.
This year, thirty-six teams from 25 schools vied for scholarships and a trip of a lifetime to the 2014 Solar Decathlon in Versailles, France.
The winners were announced at Family Solar Night, where students, their sponsors, and families gathered for an evening of interactive fun, learning, and celebration.
