The seminar, held June 16 - 19 at the National Energy Center of Excellence on the Bismarck State College campus (ND), in- cluded educators from Minnesota, Montana, South Dakota, Iowa, Wyoming and North Dakota. The seminar, titled "2014 Lignite Education Seminar: Energy, Eco- nomics and Environment," pro- vided teachers with the information and educational materials they need to teach their students how lignite is mined and used to produce energy for homes, farms and businesses in the Upper Midwest. The seminar covered lignite&apos;s economic impact on the region, as well as important environmental issues affecting the lignite industry. North Dakota's lignite industry supplies low cost, affordable elec- tricity to 2 million customers in the Upper Midwest. In North Dakota, about 80 percent of the electricity co.n. ,fr0m the slte's power pla!3ts and residential electric rates in the state are the lowest in the nation. The lignite industry also provides jobs to 4,000 employees who work at the mines and plants and anoth- er 13,000 indirect jobs. As part of the seminar, the teach- ers toured the Center Mine, Milton R. Young Station, Falkirk Mine, Coal Creek Station, the Freedom Mine, Antelope Valley Station, and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant. Teachers who attended the sem- inar and completed a lesson plan could choose from three North Dakota universities from which to receive their graduate credits: Uni- versity of North Dakota, North Dakota State University & Minot State University.
