Deadline Approaching for Ethanol Video Contest

Cindy Zimmerman

EPIC contestThe deadline for the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council’s “Fuel the Change” sweepstakes is fast approaching and new entries have been rolling in. The final deadline for entries is April 21.

The contest calls for a 30 second video about how ethanol is a part of your life and how you’re fueling American independence and a greener, cleaner future one tank at a time. The producer of the Grand Prize winning video will receive a $10,000 cash prize and have the chance to have his or her commercial aired during the 2008 Indianapolis 500 on ABC.

The winner will be determined in part by people who go to the website and vote on their favorite videos. There will also be a $5000 “People’s Choice” award solely determined by popular vote. Voting on your favorite video also makes you eligible for weekly drawings for $500.

Entries so far have run the spectrum from animated to music videos, patriotic to amusing. Here’s a one of the latest entries from the site:
