The Rewards

Saving energy is its own reward – after all, the more resources we save, the better our planet is for future generations.

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the My Energy Kit Challenge, we're striving to make energy conservation even more rewarding. There will be 10 special rewards each semester for schools, teachers and families, as well as other rewards for participation in the program.

Schools who host our livestream presentation and participate in the My Energy Kit Challenge are eligible to win cash rewards.

Click each reward to learn how you can win.

Participating schools automatically receive $250 for every 100 unique* Energy Kit requests during the 2020-21 school year. When your school reaches 100 kit requests, you’ll earn $250. When you reach 200 kit requests, you’ll get another $250 – and onwards and upwards! Every participating school can earn the $250 rewards through the entire school year up until May 31, 2021, so we challenge every school to reach 100 Energy Kit requests.

Cash rewards are sent to the school in the form of a check.

*A family's request is defined as one request per household between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. A family's request for the kit will only count once toward these rewards.

By signing up for a FREE Energy Kit, your family will be automatically entered into prize drawings for $100 each semester. These rewards will be drawn on “Family Fridays” each semester:

Fall 2020 Drawings:
October 9, October 16, October 23, October 30, November 6, November 13, November 20, December 4, December 11 and December 18

Winter/Spring 2021 Drawings:
March 5, March 12, March 19, March 26, April 2, April 9, April 16, April 30, May 7, May 14

Not a Duke customer? Already received your kit last year? Not a problem – all unique* kit requests associated with a participating school will be entered into the family drawings!

After families sign up for their kits, they are invited to help their school by spreading the word about the My Energy Kit Challenge on Facebook – and qualify for additional cash prizes!

Monthly Drawings
Families can enter into eight monthly drawings from October 2020 – May 2021 for $250. A parent or guardian can enter by sharing the posts provided to them via email, after submitting their kit sign-up. One post enters that Facebook user into drawings throughout the school year, and the Facebook user is allowed a maximum of one post per month to count as an entry into the drawings. Drawings take place on the last Friday of each month.

Photo Contest
Families who sign up for their kits are invited to enter into a contest to win a prize of $1,000.

Families enter by sharing a picture of their energy conservation efforts on Facebook, to be collected throughout the school year into an album on the My Energy Kit Facebook page. The winner is decided by community “voting” via positive reactions on each photo; the photo that has accrued the most positive reactions by the end of Earth Day 2021 (Thursday, April 22, 2021) will win, with the winner announced the next day.

Specific details about entry requirements are provided via email to families who sign up for their kit. Be sure to include your email address with your sign-up and follow My Energy Kit on Facebook to stay up-to-date with how you can engage with us, share the My Energy Kit mission, and win!

Each semester, there will be 10 drawings to award $1,000 to teachers who are participating in the My Energy Kit Challenge. When a family requests their FREE Energy Kit, they can nominate a teacher to win by listing their name on the sign-up. Each sign-up that lists a registered teacher will give that teacher an entry into the drawings. The more sign-ups submitted that list a teacher’s name, the higher their chance to win. Teachers will be eligible for the drawings taking place the semester that their school hosts the show.

These rewards will be drawn on “Teacher Tuesdays” each semester:

Fall 2020 Drawings:
October 6, October 13, October 20, October 27, November 3, November 10, November 17, December 1, December 8 and December 15

Winter/Spring 2021 Drawings:
March 2, March 9, March 16, March 23, March 30, April 6, April 13, April 27, May 4 and May 11
