Do you want to win £5,000 worth of LED lighting for your Eco-School? Eco-Schools have teamed up with UK Energy Partners to launch the Eco-Schools Energy Efficient Schools Competition. All you have to do is let them know, about your school's most successful energy efficiency project. It’s as simple as that. Your answer could include energy efficient lighting, heating or sensors; or even a behavioural change project within the school. The winning entry will win the top prize, followed by a range of other prizes kindly donated by UK Energy Partners.

Deadline is 14th December – so get your entry in now!
