Help Sacramento win ‘Coolest City’ challenge
Website has resources for teaching kids about climate issues
The Cool California Challenge is a fun contest between nine California cities to empower and reward residents for adopting low-carbon lifestyles.
The Challenge is a web-based contest that allows participating households to log home energy usage and household vehicle mileage each month. Individuals can earn points for reductions in their carbon footprint by saving energy and driving less and help their city win.
As of now, Sacramento is lagging behind Davis, Tracy and Chula Vista but is ahead of Pleasanton, Citrus Heights and Pittsburg.
Participants in the challenge will be entered to win a raffle for prizes.
