The Guyana Solar Challenge is a competition that invited young people from across the country to create innovative communication projects and educate their communities about the benefits of renewable energy.

The awards ceremony held at the CARICOM Secretariat Headquarters where the winners were awarded prizes presented by the challenge sponsors. Participants were provided with guidelines to design projects that inspire their communities to recognize and learn about the benefits of solar energy. The challenge received a variety of submissions, ranging from essays, poetry, informational videos to songs and art.

The winning projects, awarded with prizes, were able to demonstrate creativity and ability to communicate effectively and with originality the advantages of adopting renewable energy sources for Guyana. The winning projects each received a trophy, certificate of participation and cash prizes.

Solar Head of State would like to thank the sponsors for the event: Guyana Power and Light Inc, MPC CapitalGuyana Ministry of Environment, and Public Services International. With a special thanks to our partners: CARICOM EnergyCaribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) and Commonwealth Youth Council (CYC).

Solar Head of State has successfully run its second community solar competition as part of the broader effort to empower young people with the necessary tools to become tomorrow’s leaders. You can see the video from last year’s Jamaica Solar Challenge here.
