Commenting on the Clean Energy awards program, Imagining Tomorrow director Mary Essary stated that “It is delightful to see so many projects from the younger students. And it is even more encouraging to see, in just one year, the increase in the quantity, quality, and range of projects that qualify for these awards."
Middle School Award Recipients for 2008 are listed below. Award recipients received a Certificate of Recognition, and an exclusive "Visionary in Residence" t-shirt. In addition, three projects were acknowledged at the State Middle School Science and Engineering Fair; each of these projects received a $50 cash award.
