Energy-conscious behavior earned 500 euros

As part of the Leader-supported project “Experience energy – learning in a different way” the Stockheim elementary school was awarded first prize in the energy-saving competition for its school building in Reitsch. The energy saving competition, which took place in the districts of Hof, Kronach and Wunsiedel, was held under the motto “Save energy – protect the climate – move the world”. For one year, the consumption of water, electricity and heat in the participating schools was measured and compared with the previous year. The winner of the energy-saving competition was quickly determined: Stockheim Elementary School came out on top with an energy saving of 50.9 percent compared to 2016.
In the course of the energy-saving competition, Stockheim Elementary School also took part in the “Experience Energy” project The students took part in a discussion with project manager Anna Degelmann on questions such as “What is energy??”, “How much energy do we consume at home?” getting to the bottom.
They were then able to put their new knowledge into practice in the energy-saving competition. Under the guidance of Astrid Kestel and Siegbert Jakob, the students creatively explored various ways of saving energy. Energy watchdogs check plugs and light wasters, make sure that the air is properly ventilated and the heating properly regulated, and check power guzzlers and water taps.
The award ceremony was framed by the class 3a GTK and pupils of the 4a by different musical elements and a play about energy saving at the elementary school Reitsch. School councilor Kerstin Zapf raved about the commitment of the students. Mayor Rainer Detsch was impressed by a saving of 5500 euros due to the energy-conscious behavior of the students and the replacement of the old illuminants. The energy vision Frankenwald e.V. was enthusiastic about the commitment and dedication of the Reitsch students and was therefore pleased to be able to reward the first prize in the energy saving competition with 500 euros.
