Each year, Canadian Geographic Education and Shell Canada present two teachers (one elementary and one secondary) with Canada’s Energy Educator of the Year Award in recognition of their hard work and enthusiastic participation in the Classroom Energy Diet Challenge and their commitment to fostering energy literacy in their school and community.
