Energy innovation takes more than a village


Solar House project manager Emily Vandivert participated in the making of S&T’s video for the 2013 Climate Leadership Awards.

Missouri S&T’s Solar Village is one of the most innovative energy-saving programs on any college campus. That complex of four solar-powered homes — combined with S&T’s geothermal energy initiative — is the reason Missouri S&T is one of five Ph.D.-granting universities nominated for the 2013 Climate Leadership Awards.

S&T is also up for another award — and you can help us win it.

To vote for our video, visit this website and cast your ballot.

To raise awareness about the Climate Leadership Awards, all finalists were asked to create a video about their innovative approaches toward climate or energy issues. To vote for our video, please visit this website and cast your ballot. Scroll down to find our video near the bottom of the page. Voting is open throughout the month of April. You may cast one vote a day, every day, during the month.

Thank you for your support. And please, tell your friends to vote for Missouri S&T’s Climate Leadership Awards video. It’s going to take more than a village — solar or otherwise — to win this video competition.
