At its May school board meeting, the New Caney ISD recognized three students for their participation in an Energy Saving Poster Contest sponsored by Entergy Texas. The contest provided students with the opportunity to show off their creativity and inspire others to save energy at school. The winners were chosen in March and their winning designs have been professionally printed and distributed throughout the school district. So, who won? Drumroll please…

From Dogwood Elementary, first-grade student Anthony Grimaldo and fifth-grade student Genesis Pena each earned top honors. Ashlynn Cantu, an eighth-grade student from New Caney Middle School was also recognized. Their posters were presented to the School Board and the students received an award and special recognition from Entergy Texas.

“The students really enjoyed participating in the poster contest, and it is truly rewarding to see them understand the importance of being good stewards of our resources and care about conserving energy,” said Paul Batchelder, New Caney ISD Director of Facilities and Energy Management.
