PUD energy week

Know a kid interested in energy?

Snohomish PUD in partnership with Washington Business Week is offering scholarships for students to attend the Washington Energy Week Program!

Summer Fun!…with a little “energy” thrown in

At Energy Week, business meets sustainability as you explore the world of energy. Energy experts will show you first-hand how energy, economics, and environment combine to create career opportunities in solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, fuel cells, and fossil and alternative fuels.

You’ll be part of a small team (“company”) of students from around the state. Joined by a mentor “Company Advisor” from the business community, your company’s objective is to sell your expertise on energy and how it can be created, consumed, and conserved in homes of the future.

Energy Week is a crash course in the challenges and opportunities of life after high school, such as leadership, team-building, managing money, preparing for a career, and so much more! You’ll learn the skills that are critical to your future success in any profession.

Throughout the week you’ll also take a test run of college life, meet new friends, explore careers, enhance your leadership skills and earn college credit.
