Myrtle Beach Middle School selected as South Carolina School of the Year by NEED

Myrtle Beach Middle Congratulations to Myrtle Beach Middle School for being named South Carolina School of the Year by the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project for their outstanding energy education project: Out with the old, In with the new!

The students will be invited to attend the 38th Annual NEED Youth Energy Conference and Awards in Washington, D.C. in June 2018. The annual June conference will have students from across the country working in groups on an Energy Challenge designed to stretch their minds and energy knowledge.

Myrtle Beach Middle School’s Hawk Energy Club was formed this school year in preparation for the move into their new school building. The club started calculating the amount of energy used by the former school compared to their new school. The club created a video to discuss the energy efficient HVAC system and other energy efficient systems featured in the new school. Next year the club plans to learn about the building envelope, temperature and moisture control, and construction practices.
