Schools are being invited to submit short videos explaining what they could do with $500 to improve energy efficiency.
The Watts Working Better Energy Efficiency in Schools video competition is part of the Watts Working Better project, initiated by the Goulburn Broken Greenhouse Alliance and which will see more than 12,600 street lights upgraded to energy efficient Fluorescent and LED lights throughout the nine Council areas by the end of 2015. These energy efficient improvements will save significantly on electricity costs and greenhouse gas emissions for local Councils.
“Energy efficiency is key to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and we know that young people are a great driver of behaviour change,” said Mayor Cr Justin King.
“We are spreading this message through the Watts Working Better Energy Efficiency In Schools Video Competition and we can’t wait to see the energy saving contemplations, dreams and visions from participating schools,” he said.
Entries from schools in the participating council areas must be received by Friday 16 October 2015 and address the question, “How would you improve energy efficiency in your school if it won $500?”
Every entry will receive a prize, with one ‘first prize’ of a $500 gift voucher for the Enviro Shop Eco Store, awarded in each Council area.
Videos can be created on a video camera or digital device such as an iPad (file format - MP4, Window Media, QuickTime).
