Guest post from PoE junior Sarah Kiner, who spent last summer working as an intern in Washington DC for SmartPower:
Do You Have What It Takes To Be America’s Next Eco-Star?
By Sarah Kiner
Imagine winning an all-expenses-paid trip to the summer 2012 Sustainable Futures Academy at the Salzburg Global Seminar in Austria AND a fellowship in the Washington, D.C., office of SmartPower!
These prizes might seem too good to be true, but SmartPower is looking for students just like us to win these prizes, as well as the title of America’s Next Eco-Star.
SmartPower is the nation’s leading clean energy and energy efficiency marketing firm, located in Washington, D.C. This past summer, I had the opportunity to be an intern at SmartPower, where I learned so much about the expanding field of renewable energy, while completing projects and attending hearings focused on the most pressing environmental issues of the time. The winner of America’s Next Eco-Star would have the same opportunity as I did, and I can say from experience that it’s worth competing for!
