Careers in the energy sector are on the rise. The Illinois Department of Employment Security predicts that there will be a growth of more than 50,000 energy-related jobs by 2022. During Careers in Energy week, the Illinois Energy Workforce Consortium (IEWC) is providing free materials and an opportunity to win one of three $250 classroom grants to help you share these exciting career opportunities with your students!


Visit the IEWC Careers in Energy Week website to download a free Get Into Energy flier, which you may print and duplicate for your students. You may also access the Energy Learning Exchange website to download free energy career education materials or request a speaker.


Show us how your class used any of the materials above for a chance to win one of three $250 class room grants. All you need to do is email a photo and brief description (3-4 sentences) of how you used these materials with students to [email protected] with the subject line “Class Grant Entry.”  It’s that simple!

The deadline to submit entries is January 13, 2017. The drawing will take place on January 20, 2017, with award presentations occurring in March 2017.

It is an exciting time to consider a career in energy! We hope that you will share these materials with your students as you prepare them for their future. View last year’s winning entries here.
