Wallingford area student Olivia Cabrera St. Pierre was honored last week as a finalist at the 13th annual eesmarts™ Student Contest ceremony which took place at the State Capitol on Friday, June 2.
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 Kindergarten to 12 and college to create projects about energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability.
Olivia’s book review for “Just A Dream” was awarded second place in the Grade 5 category. Her review explains how Walter came to the realization of how we pollute the Earth and its dangers. Olivia reflected that everyone has an obligation to be mindful about how we treat the planet, and how we can help by doing something as simple as planting a tree.
Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Deputy Commissioner Mary Sotos was the keynote speaker for the event, and FOX 61 meteorologist Joe Furey served as Master of Ceremonies.
