Anuj Sisodiya, Trumbull, Connecticut
Trumbull High School, 2016
As a sophomore, Anuj created “Light It, But Time It,” a community-based, energy-saving project. During holiday seasons, he suggested that each household use a timer when using their festive, electronic décor. Anuj created a website and employed social media, public canvassing, grocery store booths, and door-to-door campaigning to distribute free electrical light timers and to promote energy conservation. Anuj worked with energy company managers, town leaders, and vendors to further his initiative. He has also launched “Measure, Monitor, and Save Energy (M2SE)” to use technology and apps to conserve energy. Anuj recently implemented “Energy Savings and Awareness Week (E-SAW)” in his high school. He is the recipient of the Prudential Spirit of Community Service Award, the Action for Nature International Eco Hero Award, and the President Environmental Youth Award. Anuj is also a four-year member of the Debate Team, the Spanish Club, and the varsity tennis team.
