While 2020 started with so much hope and excitement for a new decade, it was quickly met with a lot of unknowns, anxiety, and fear. Many educators have learned to transition to online learning while many parents continue to navigate how they can balance school, work, and home life under the same roof day in and day out.
As the new school year approaches, those same educators and parents weigh how to move forward and keep their staff, students, and families safe. Experts, state, and federal officials have even weighed in. Considering their guidance and that of our board of directors and sponsors, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to delay our 10th Annual Energy Day Festival in Houston this October. We will advise everyone as soon as we settle on a new date in 2021 and an updated, comprehensive program.
While we’re sad that our 10th Annual Energy Day Festival in Houston will be postponed, many of our sponsors are looking forward to coming back better, safer, and more robust in the upcoming year. Unfortunately, that means we’ll be putting all grants and Energy Day Academic Programming awards on hold until Energy Day 2021.
We will carry the names of the 2020 winners over into 2021 to ensure their hard work and dedication to STEM can be celebrated with their peers, and our team will be in touch with the winners. We hope you’ll continue to support the programs we follow and encourage these wonderful students to continue pursuing their love of STEM.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you when Energy Day can resume safely.
Until next year,
The CEEF and Energy Day Teams
