What is the
Eversource Challenge?

The Eversource Challenge is a program for K–12 students living in an Eversource electric community. It invites students to showcase their knowledge on saving energy, energy-efficient technologies, and sustainability through various challenges.


The Eversource Challenge is open to all students in grades K–12 in towns served by Eversource (see “List of Eligible Communities”, below). The program offers grade-specific challenges ranging from poster-making for first graders to persuasive imagery for high school students. We encourage teachers and administrators to promote the program in their classrooms and schools. To see the challenge for each grade, visit our assignments section.


Registration for the Eversource Challenge runs from November 2nd, 2020, to March 17th, 2021.

Registration has ended. Registration will open again on November 2nd, 2021.

The Eversource Challenge gives students grade-specific assignments that showcase their energy knowledge with a focus on four core values:


Reducing or going without a service to save energy.


Technologies that have been developed to save energy.


Using less energy to provide the same service.


Not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.
