Project Enlighten

Powering the Future through Open Minds

Fundraise and install a windmill as a source of alternative energy on the campus of DeWitt High School:

The involvement of students in this initiative will provide cutting edge learning opportunities before, during, and after the successful completion of the project.

  • assist in fundraising efforts by researching and contacting appropriate sources of potential funding such as local businesses, universities and colleges, foundations, local, state, and federal governments, DHS alumni, DeWitt area residents, etc.
  • research relevant topics in alternative energy, specifically wind power and other forms of green technology and their role in conserving natural resources
  • participate in the installation of the windmill
