We need your help! Suggest a name for the newest building at the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center (RCREC) and win great prizes. RCREC is located on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, home of the Oglala Lakota, and is the headquarters of our Tribal Renewable Energy Program.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • The primary purpose of this building is environmental education for Native Americans.
  • The building will be used to host many renewable energy and energy efficiency trainings.
  • The other known type of training will be sustainable agriculture (perhaps nutrition, cooking, and/ or food preservation classes).
  • The building will also be available for rent to outside groups, so any number of other activities will take place there.

Contest Details: 

  • We will take name submissions from May 16-23. 
  • Submissions will be reviewed by Tribal Program staff and partners and a winner will be picked on Friday, May 31st. The winner will receive a very cool gift basket!
  • The best names will be creative as well as respectful of the Lakota culture and people.

To submit your name suggestion please fill out the form below with “training annex name idea” in the subject line. Thanks for your help!
