Rockville High wins $20K in CL&P 'green' promo

Vernon's Rockville High won a $20,000 environmental grant, while Hartford and Manchester tech-ed schools were each $5,000 runners-up in Connecticut Light & Power Co.'s annual green-energy promotion.

CL&P's Live Green - Win Green competition was open to high school systems in its service territory. Students had to show in a two-minute video and accompanying essay what their school currently does to conserve energy and be more environmentally responsible, and to propose a significant future "green" project they would like to implement at their school.

Rockville High was chosen for the quality of its video and essay on a plan to build a science, technology, engineering and mathematics lab at the school, CL&P President Jim Muntz said Monday.

"There were 16 entries and just as in previous years, the judges had some really tough choices to make," Muntz said. "Rockville was a runner-up last year and said they would be back.''

Last year's winner, Danbury's Henry Abbott Technical High School, was selected as a runner-up, along with Hartford's A.I. Prince Technical High School and Howell Cheyney Technical High School in Manchester.
