West Haven area students and classmates Natalia Lecce, Ashlyn O’Keefe, Amanda Hill and Kassandra Marron were honored last week as finalists at the 13th annual eesmarts™ Student Contest ceremony held at the State Capitol.
Presented by Energize Connecticut in partnership with Eversource and AVANGRID, Inc. subsidiaries United Illuminating, Southern Connecticut Gas and Connecticut Natural Gas, the eesmarts Student Contest invites Connecticut students in grades K-12 and college to create projects about energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability.
Natalia, Ashlyn, Amanda and Kassandra were awarded second place in the Grade 9-11 category for their community-based project addressing Connecticut’s air quality and pollution. The eleventh graders’ plan explains that air pollution is a result of light, specifically energy expelled from light bulbs. Their solution is to encourage Connecticut residents to invest in LED light bulbs. They cite, “LED light bulbs are significantly cheaper than other alternatives, and use 25-80 percent less energy in turn contributing to cleaner air.”
The following Sacred Heart Academy students were named to the fourth quarter honor roll:
HIGH HONORS — Veronica Adams, Ashley Angeles, Catherine Beckwith, Anna Beebe, Molly Cannon, Fatima Cardozo, Courtney Carlson, Julia Danehy, Abigail Davis, Daphne Donniri, Delia Donniri, Maame-Adjoa Edjah, Mayschell Mora-Cryus , Bailey Moran, Allison Sawicki, Livia Talamelli, Taylor Weiss.
