2013-2014 Energy Efficiency Calendar now available!

NYC DOE hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to announce the winners of the energy efficiency art contest and gave awards to 15 talented students for creating art work which demonstrates how schools save energy. 

Over 600 students from all 5 boroughs and all grade levels participated.  The art work was used to create the NYC DOE Energy Efficiency 2013-2014 calendar and an original copy will be distributed to all schools this fall! The calendar can be downloaded here.
