- Youth Action
In California: Thanks to the generosity of Pacific Gas & Electric, select schools in California competed to see who can cut the most energy and CO2 and win a huge grant from PG&E.
In Chicago: Chicago Public Schools (CPS) brought this program to local schools and gave service learning credits to participants.
(Students outside of California and Illinois took part in the Us vs Waste competition.)
ACE's Unplugged competition made it easy and downright awesome for teens to save their school money, cut CO2 and win.
Save energy. Save the world.
How the Competition Worked: Teens reduced their school's energy use by turning down the lights and slaying gnarly energy vampires, like TVs and computers. The Action Team that shed the most pounds of CO2 over a three weeks period would win.
