Recognizing that our children are our future, the Lignite Energy Council has implemented an education program designed to help students learn more about the lignite industry and its impact on the region’s economy. Starting in 1986, the Council began conducting seminars for teachers from all grade levels. The teachers are provided with the information and educational materials they need to teach their students about our region’s lignite industry.

For past teacher seminar participants ONLY:
We appreciate all the teachers from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana and Wisconsin who have attended the Lignite Energy Council's teacher education seminars in previous years. In order to better serve you, could you please let us know if you are no longer teaching, or if your address has changed. Also, If you would like to give a session on "how to develop classroom lesson plans on lignite" at a future teacher seminar, please let us know.
