For the second year in a row, Everlight Solar has given out $10,000 in Clean Energy Scholarships to lucky students at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota. The program is run through individual schools where the students are invited to write an essay about “How you are helping keep the environment clean”. Two finalists from each school were selected to compete in a basketball shootout.
In previous years, the shootout took place during half time at a university basketball game. Due to restrictions, this year they were held at Everlight Solar offices that are both equipped with basketball courts.
At Everlight Solar, clean and renewable energy is more than just a convenience; it’s what our world needs to survive.We are so grateful for the over 300 students that entered, and a big congrats to our to winners who each took home checks for $5,000. Check out the videos below to see how close each shootout was. Good times had by all and, as importantly, spreading this important message to everyone around us.
