Boston-based wind energy developer First Wind will sponsor scholarships and school awards for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's (LADWP) 21st annual Science Bowl.

First Wind owns and operates the two phases of the Milford Wind Corridor projects that deliver renewable energy to Los Angeles and several nearby communities, including Pasadena, Burbank and Glendale.

The Science Bowl will be held on Feb. 23 at LADWP's downtown headquarters. The competition tests students' reflexes, teamwork skills and knowledge of science, math and technology in a fun, competitive atmosphere following a television game-show format, First Wind explains.

This is the third year that First Wind has been a sponsor of the Science Bowl. This year, the company will provide $7,750 in scholarships and awards to schools and students. First Wind is sponsoring all the awards in the First Wind Hands-On Competition, with prizes of $250 for the five first-place winners and $100 for the five fourth-place winners. In addition, First Wind is funding the second-place school award in the amount of $1,750 and the second-place student scholarship at $500 each for the five winners of that prize.
