HOUSTON, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As a proud sponsor of the recent third Annual Energy Day Festival in Houston, Just Energy was proud to highlight its participation with a financial award to the Science Engineering Fair of Houston. Presented by Deborah Merril (pictured), Executive Vice President of Just Energy, the award went to the first, second, and third place winning students who competed in the Energy/Transportation category of the 2013 Science Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH).
SEFH is one of six unique, citywide, energy-related competitions recognized at this year's Energy Day Festival. Winners from each of the six competitions receive an award and recognition at Energy Day.
The competitions comprise the Energy Day Academic Program, a year-long initiative designed to engage students in energy education and inspire young minds to seek careers in science and technology. SEFH has promoted the "learning and application of technology" for Texas junior and senior high school students in Houston and the 23-county area since 1960. A regional fair, SEFH is associated with the INTEL International Science & Engineering Fair and is one of the largest pre-college STEM activities in the U.S.
"As a leader in the retail commodity and green energy space, we are absolutely delighted to award this honor to the Science Engineering Fair of Houston," says Deborah Merril. "It is our privilege to partner with the Consumer Energy Alliance and the University of Houston to support energy education early on and inspire interest at the junior and senior school levels towards nurturing our energy leaders of tomorrow."
The Houston Annual Energy Day Festival is a free, day-long family oriented event showcasing innovation in energy. Students and their families have an opportunity to learn more about state of the art technology through kid-friendly demonstrations, exhibits, and interaction with industry experts. As a featured exhibitor, Just Energy representatives were on hand to invite students to interact, ask questions and learn about innovative and conservational developments in the energy industry, as well as their green energy programs and initiatives.
