Oh Dear! What Can The Matter Be?

VERSES 1.

The first young kid had a wasteful tradition Of leaving his switch in an upward position. His light burned out while he was fishin’. And now he knows why he should care!

2.

The second kid was a real wasteful daughter Who washed the dishes while running the water. And later that night wished her bath tub was hotter And now she knows why she should care!

3.

The third young kid liked to walk with bare feet— Instead of warm socks, he turned up the heat. The bill was so high, he had nothing to eat And now he knows why he should care!

4.

The fourth young kid was late as a rule— Quite often would miss the last bus for school. Her mom had to drive her and ran out of fuel And now she knows why she should care!

5.

The fifth young kid wanted some kind of snack— He opened the fridge—looked in front and in back. He stood there so long, the food all turned black And now he knows why he should care!

6.

The sixth young kid often ran out to play Leaving her Play Station running all day. Her dad finally took the whole system away And now she knows why she should care!

Youth Awards for Energy Achievement

All NEED schools have outstanding classroom-based programs in which students learn about energy. Does your school have student leaders who extend these activities into their communities? To recognize outstanding achievement and reward student leadership, The NEED Project conducts the National Youth Awards Program for Energy Achievement. This program combines academic competition with recognition to acknowledge everyone involved in NEED during the year—and to recognize those who achieve excellence in energy education in their schools and communities.

What’s involved? Students and teachers set goals and objectives, and keep a record of their activities. If students like, they can combine their planning materials and activities into a binder or portfolio that highlights their goals, outreach opportunities, and their evaluation of the activities. Students will then use this binder or portfolio to help them create a digital project to submit for judging. In April, digital projects should be uploaded to the online submission site. Want more info? Check out www.NEED.org/Youth-Awards for more application and program information, previous winners, and photos of past events.
