School Name: Argyle Elementary School, Regina

Grade: Grade 7/8

Campaign Name: Gators Go Green

Campaign Description: Our classroom got the whole school community involved in the 25 acts of energy conservation contest by creating a BINGO card with 25 squares. Each square was an energy conservation act. Every time a student completed an act they got to cross off the act from the card. For every line they completed on the card they got their name entered into a prize draw. As well, if they tweeted out a picture with the #25acts they received an additional entry. The prize package was filled with gifts donated from various environmentally friendly businesses. We created a power point explaining the contest and each classroom had designated students in charge of giving the mini lesson on the BINGO card and why this contest is important for our environment. Through this activity we had 943 acts of energy conservation performed by our school community, 209 acts tweeted out, and averaged 5 acts per family.
