First Wind has announced that it will sponsor some scholarships and a school award at this year's Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Science Bowl. First Wind owns and operates the Milford Wind project in Utah, which delivers power to Los Angeles and some nearby communities.
As part of its sponsorship of the Science Bowl, First Wind is providing $750 scholarships to each of the five members of the second-place team of the competition. For the Science Bowl's ‘hands-on’ competition, First Wind is providing $400 gift cards to the five members of the first-place team. Finally, First Wind is also providing a $2,000 donation to the school of the second-place team.
The 2011 LADWP Science Bowl competition will be held on Feb. 26 at LADWP's John Ferraro Building. At this year's competition, students will vie for a combined $25,000 in college scholarship funds for themselves and prizes for their respective high schools. First-place team members will each receive a $1,000 scholarship as well as $2,500 for his or her school. As regional title holders, the winning team will represent Los Angeles at the U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C., April 28 through May 3.
