Winners of the ECAP competition will receive an award and recognition at Energy Day on October 15, 2011. Participation will be tracked online. Students must sign in at the Energy Day booth at each ECAP event in order to receive credit for attending, and must be present at Energy Day to receive an award.

Other participating organizations include: the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston, C-STEM Teacher and Student Support Services, the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce, the Cooperative for After-School Enrichment, Houston Museum of Natural Science, the University of Houston, and the Harris County Department of Education.
