Young people all over the country are encouraged to take the Flex-Fuel Challenge and help pave the way for our nation’s renewable energy future.
The Renewable Fuels Association is kicking off the initiative today at Kansas State University and unveiling a new website, e85challenge.com to get college students engaged in the debate surrounding issues that impact their future: the economy, energy and the environment.
The challenge encourages them to produce a short video, take a photo, or even write a song about creative ideas on renewable energy that will impact future generations. Robert White, Director of Market Development for the Renewable Fuels Association, says the most creative of those entries can win some nice prizes. “Their own peers will decide who wins,” said White. “The overall winner will receive a MacBook Air laptop and each week we will be giving away a portable Passport™ hard drive in a drawing.”
White says they will be promoting the challenge during appearances at the top 15 college campuses nationwide, but anyone can enter on-line.
