04/05/2013 - It’s Easy Bein’ Green’: Annual Video Competition
Nebraska Public Power District’s annual “It’s Easy Bein’ Green” video competition. This annual competition challenges student teams to create an ingenious, 27-second message about energy efficiency. NPPD, together with its wholesale partner utilities, is once again sponsoring this energy efficiency video contest.
The contest is open to Nebraska students in grades seven through 12 in communities served by NPPD and its wholesale utility partners. Entries must be submitted by a school sponsor, be exactly 27 seconds in length, and should focus on creative and unique energy-saving ideas for the home, school, farm, or business. In order to be considered, entries must be submitted by April 5, 2013, via NPPD’s website at http://v1.nppd.com/videochallenge/.
All qualifying entries will be posted on www.nppd.com and on a special YouTube channel. For the ‘Creative Video Award,’ a panel of energy industry experts will select the top three video winners. First place will receive an Apple iPad2, along with prizes for team members involved in the submission. The video with the most views on YouTube will receive special recognition as the “Popular Video” and receive certificates of recognition.
The winning schools and students may be featured in NPPD news releases, social media sites online, and through other publicity media by NPPD. Additionally, the selected commercials could be considered for professional production and possible placement in a statewide media campaign in 2013. Winning schools will be notified by 5 p.m. April 9, 2013.
“It’s Easy Bein’ Green!” video contest is sponsored, in part, by NPPD’s EnergyWise efficiency incentives program, which offers incentives to homeowners, businesses, and agriculture, and by NPPD’s GreenSchools program, an environmental service-learning program that inspires students to take personal responsibility for improving the environment at their school, at home, and in their community.
