About the Contest
Much like our annual WHERE Challenge, WHERE Challenge Mini is designed to inspire youth to discover the non-renewable resources that are used to make the items we use every day. Each individual contest is a condensed version of the larger WHERE Challenge for those who are unable to enter the main contest.
*Please note that this contest is only available to Canadian residents.*

We use electricity every day, often without even thinking about it. We turn on the lights when it is dark, use our phones to communicate, and often use it to cook our food. It is almost always at our fingertips; however, the production of electricity often comes at a cost to the Earth. Even renewable energy sources require non-renewable resources.
The Challenge: Determine where the power that runs your home comes from and what non-renewable resources are used to produce it.
BONUS Entry: Let us know how you can save electricity and help conserve our natural resources.
How to Enter:
1. Use the top of the registration form to submit your entry (and bonus)! Additional entries can be submitted through submitting the form again or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, please use the subject line: WHERE Challenge Mini.
