Chad Willis, Chair of NCGA's Ethanol Action Team, says "Today's youth will be shaping tomorrow's world, and we want to tap their creativity to showcase the economic and environmental benefits of this domestic and renewal source of energy."
First-place winners in each category (high school and college) will receive a $1,500 prize. For second place, $500 will be awarded.
Judges are looking for two minutes or less of video that contains at least four facts about ethanol. Topics can include information on ethanol's contribution to local economies, decreased reliance on foreign oil and environmental attributes.
Winning videos will be selected based on impact, video design and editing, creativity and general appeal.
