Eighth-grader Soo-Yeon Kwon's poster shows her vision -- a future with
renewable energy sources that work in sync to preserve natural resources.
"For our own health and for our future generations, we must keep the
earth clean," Soo-Yeon said in her description of her brightly colored
watercolor work titled "The Earth Pocket." The painting shows how
electricity can be drawn from the sun, wind and hydroelectric projects.
Third-grader Ginah Kim's drawing presents a beaming sun plugged into
buses also being powered by the wind.
"I want all the people in California to try to save the earth, and
save energy," Ginah said in her description of "Sun and Wind Power Car."

The energy commission is responsible for researching renewable energy
resources and developing the state's energy policy.
