Individual students sharing the same residential utility account(s) will be counted as separate and individual participants. Students who do not maintain the same home energy account number during the Baseline Period and the Challenge Period are not eligible to participate in the Home Energy Challenge. In other words, student participants must maintain the same residence throughout the Baseline and Challenge periods. If a student participant's utility account number changed between the Baseline and Challenge Periods but the student maintained (and submits data for) the same residence for the Baseline and Challenge Periods, that student participant is eligible to participate in the regional or national Home Energy Challenge. A complete explanation for account number changes will be required for the energy data verification process. Only those participants who are listed in the team roster will be included in the Baseline and Challenge totals. Students who change residences, leave the team, or do not provide the required information will not be eligible to have their energy data in the team data set but they may participate in the Energy Plan and Poster Contest. Students who reside in residences that are not individually metered are not eligible to be counted as participants in the Home Energy Challenge data collection activity but they may participate in the Energy Plan and Poster Contest. Students who are not eligible to be participants in the Home Energy Challenge may still benefit from participation in the Energy Use Savings Plan and Poster Contest and the Energy Fitness Award. Eligibility - Team Advisor Participation in America's Home Energy Education Challenge requires coordination by a responsible adult who agrees to facilitate and validate student participation.
