Blog : GUEST BLOG: Statewide video contest to promote energy savings
The New England Carbon Challenge (NECC) and its partners announced today the My Energy PlanTM (MEP) Video Challenge 2011 for New Hampshire residents.
Between January 3 and February 28, the NECC invites individuals (age 13 and above) and groups from across New Hampshire to submit 1- to 4-minute videos about their energy plans.
This unique short-video contest is the centerpiece of My Energy PlanTM, a new suite of web tools designed to help households reduce their energy consumption. Created by the NECC, with the NH Sustainable Energy Association and the University of NH Cooperative Extension and housed at myenergyplan.net, these web tools help individuals make a plan to increase energy and cost savings over time. MEP helps individuals act on the power they have to make changes in their life.
Green Alliance is a sponsor, so winners will receive free Green Cards as part of their prize packages!
The NECC is a joint initiative of the University of NH and Clean Air-Cool Planet, the leading non-profit dedicated solely to delivering solutions to global warming.
Videos entered in the My Energy Plan Video Challenge, outlining your energy plan, can be compilations of actions, for example, by members of a school class or an energy committee. The videos will be judged in seven categories:
· Youth (13 - 17)
· Students of Colleges/Post-Secondary Educational Institutions
· Individuals (18 years and older)
· Not for Profit Groups – (local energy committees, community groups, faith groups, etc).
· Experienced Video Creators (professionals, film students, etc.)
