Energy4me wants to see how your SPE section shares energy education with your community. Send us your articles, podcasts, photos—anything that shows us how you’re making energy education a reality! Are you making a guest presentation at a school? Record your session with the students and turn it into an educational podcast! We’ll put the best video and audio clips on our website.

A quick tip: If you’re going to feature students on video or in photos, make sure you use our Minor Photo Release form so you can get permission for the students to be featured.
