Students Soar In ‘Solar Power’ Competition

Three Farmingdale School District students were recently awarded as third place winners of the EmPower Solar Student Competition. The team – comprised of Annie Chen, Ann Lin and Amelia Makhanlall – was honored by EmPower Solar at the competition’s award ceremony held at the Town of Hempstead Energy Park.  

 

The students created an interactive video, which received more than 2,300 likes on YouTube, and wrote a research-based essay that explained the environmental and economic benefits of solar power. 

 

As a reward, the trio will spend a day at the Long Island-based company to learn more about solar energy while participating in a hands-on experience in a real-world business environment and have lunch with Empower Solar CEO David Schieren and COO Greg Sachs.
