Amerigreen opens 2nd annual energy solutions video essay contest

By Amerigreen Energy | April 17, 2017

Amerigreen Energy and its 100 percent American fuel dealers throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware are hosting a video essay challenge. Students are invited to express their views on energy solutions for the future in a 30-second video. Prompt questions are supplied focusing on energy source and solutions for the future.

The contest begins April 17 and is open to students in grades 6-12, and undergraduate college students in the dealers’ regions. College scholarships will be awarded to the winning high school and undergraduate college students. Middle school winners will receive special location ticket packs.

An Amerigreen panel will select the top five videos from all the submissions in both age groups. These videos will be posted on Amerigreen’s website where votes are cast. The student video receiving the most votes will be the contest winner.

“We were so impressed with last year’s video submissions from students,” said Steve McCracken, Amerigreen CEO of energy services. “They were passionate, creative and you could tell they had done a lot of research to get the facts right. They made us really encouraged and hopeful. We also want to thank our participating 100 percent American fuel dealers for garnering community support from area schools, teachers and customers to encourage students to enter the contest. We are excited to see this year’s entries.”
