Dow Corning Korea Hosts "Green Energy Club Contest Awards"


  • Top 8 environment-oriented clubs from elementary, middle, and high schools recognized at Jincheon
  • Voluntary hands-on experiences boost young people's interest in environment and science

Dow Corning Korea Ltd (dowcorning.com), a global leader in silicone, silicon-based technology and innovation, announced that it hosted the "2014 Green Energy Contest Awards", organized by the Korean Environmental Education Association, at the company's plant in Jincheon, Chungcheongbukdo of Korea.

A total of eight clubs won prizes, including 1 Grand prize and 2 Gold/Silver each and 3 Bronze prizes with a total value of KRW 4 million. The ‘Lily volunteer club' from Cheongju girl's high school took home the Grand prize.

Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, the ‘Green Energy Club Contest Awards' is an initiative by Dow Corning Korea to support science education and good environmental practices. It provides the top environment-oriented school clubs from elementary, middle, and high schools in the Chungcheongbukdo area with comprehensive environment and science education opportunities as well as support for their creative club activities.

For the contest, the clubs undertook tasks such as reducing leftover food, holding water quality and ecology exploration, essay-writing contest focusing on energy conservation, and environment-related reading discussion, growing a vegetable garden in school, and reducing carbon emissions in daily life while running an online community and their own booth on the ceremony date. The winners were selected based on the combined scores from online community operations, interim/final reports, presentation on the ceremony date, and evaluation by employees at Dow Corning's manufacturing site at Jincheon.

"Through our involvement with the ‘Green Energy Club Contest' we are trying to play a part in encouraging young people to take an interest in environment, and also enhance their knowledge of science. Both of these are important for the future growth of Korea and a building a sustainable future," said MG Moon, President and Representative Director of Dow Corning Korea Ltd.
