ENERGY CONSERVATION PSA AND POSTER CONTEST (ages 9-19)

1st Annual CALL FOR YOUTH PRODUCED PSAs about Energy Conservation
Presented by SDG&E

What do YOU do to conserve energy at home, at school, with friends? Share your ideas and practices by creating a short 15-30 second Public Service Announcement video OR a 8”x14” poster about energy conservation.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
- How do you use LESS electricity to have MORE fun?
- How can you use less energy to light up a room? (think energy efficient light bulbs)
- How can I reduce my cord addiction? There has to be a way to not be plugged in all day.
- What are the alternatives to the plug? (solar energy, wind turbines, hydro/water power)
- When do I use the most energy/electricity during my day?
- How much energy can we save if we make small changes to our everyday activities?
- What are the statistics? How much energy do we REALLY use?
- How can we use solar energy to charge our mobile devices?
- How can we use less energy to stay cool in the hot summer months?
- How can we use less energy to stay warm in the winter?
- How can we make energy conservation cool?
