Categories and Judging
Videos will be judged in three categories:
There will be a total of nine Judge’s Choice Awards: one for each age group in every category. Judges can also select an unlimited number of Honorable Mentions from the videos entered.
Entries can be by individuals or collaborative groups. All submissions will be considered for all three categories.
Entries will be pre-screened by a designated committee to select the finalists for the Judging Panel’s consideration.
The Judging Panel will be picked from those with expertise in the fields of education, weatherization & efficiency, marketing, media, and other related professions.
Awards and Benefits
All of the videos submitted will be available for public viewing on the contest site. In addition, videos may be shared through social media channels, screened at meetings, conferences, and festivals, or broadcast on public access or commercial outlets.
Judge’s Choice and Honorable Mentions will make up the pool of candidates eligible for the People’s Choice award to be selected through online voting in November.
