The Energy Ministry said nine entries were submitted from five high schools across Belize.
The students had to show how the “advancement of electricity services … makes our lives more efficient and productive with today’s increased global awareness, paving the way for more renewable and clean sources of energy in the future with interventions for low-carbon emissions”.
