Energy Star Video Challenge Contest Features Erie Carbon Cop School Program. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency this week launched a nationwide effort to encourage Americans to take part in the “Be an Energy Star” video challenge by picking up their home video cameras and documenting the energy-efficient actions they are taking in their home, school, workplace and community.
The video introduction to the contest features Rachel Gollhardt and the "Carbon Cop" program which teaches second graders at Davis Primary School in Erie how to reduce energy use and their carbon footprint.
The videos will be featured on the Energy Star website and social networking websites where the public will view and vote for their favorite videos in the fall. The winning entries will be showcased on the Energy Star website during Energy Awareness month in October.
