Mortenson Sponsors Energy Fest

Mortenson Construction was pleased to sponsor the 5th annual TREC Education's "Kids' World of Energy" festival. The event took place near our Canada office, at the Evergreen Brick Works building in downtown Toronto. Throughout the week of May14th, approximately 3,000 students in grades 5 & 6 took part in various workshops focused on renewable energy. Mortenson hosted an exciting workshop about wind farm construction and presented to more than 400 students. The Ontario Minister of Energy was also in attendance and participated in several activities.

TREC Education was very happy with the support they received. "It was great to see the unique and informative workshops of some of our sponsors," they stated, "notably Kiosk Solar with their model solar house and Mortenson Construction, presenting on how to build a wind farm."

TREC Education's annual program reaches a total of over 25,000 students, youth, families and professional groups. To learn more about TREC Education, please visit www.treceducation.ca.
