Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP) participants are going digital to encourage people across the United States to save energy and win their community the competition’s coveted $5 million prize. From Twitter to YouTube, see how these GUEP competitors are engaging their social networks to encourage energy savings:

  • This amusing video from the City of Columbia, Missouri, takes hashtags to a whole new level to remind viewers about the many ways they can reduce their energy use.
  • City of Takoma Park, Maryland, City Councilmember Kate Stewart welcomed a local television station to film her home’s blower door test, and Councilmember Tim Male followed suit with an energy assessment of his home.
  • The City of Walla Walla, Washington, used Twitter to announce an Energy Prize slogan and logo design contest with a $100 prize for the winning resident.
  • In Indiana, the Monroe County Energy Challenge took both a humorous and educational take on saving energy with infographics on Twitter.
