Houston, TX – Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA) second annual Energy Day Festival is quickly approaching. Scheduled for October 20th, the festival celebrates and highlights the importance of energy in our daily lives. This day-long festival takes place at Hermann Square in front of City Hall in Downtown Houston, Texas. The festival will include energy exhibits, live music, food, contests and fun for all ages.
An official City of Houston event, Energy Day’s mission is to highlight and demonstrate innovation in energy and to spark the interests of our next generation in energy-related careers. A fun and interactive event, Energy Day will give students and their families an opportunity to learn about various forms of energy, scientific breakthroughs, and technology through educational displays, demonstrations, contests and presentations.
“Educational outreach and workforce development is key to the future of the energy industry and the Texas economy,” said David Holt, President of Consumer Energy Alliance. “We are happy to help secure the future of the energy industry in our great state.”
In addition to the festival, CEA and its partners also host a year-long Energy Day Academic Program that helps to amplify existing academic competitions and events through a series of six unique, citywide, energy-related competitions. The program helps to motivate, challenge and inspire young minds to seek careers in science and technology. 105 winners will receive a monetary award and recognition at the Energy Day Festival.
