TO GIVE STUDENTS A VOICE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST GLOBAL WARMING
In honor of Blog Action Day!
SANTA MONICA CA, USA — –/WORLD-WIRE/– Miles Electric Vehicles announced today that it is supporting NO GAS REQUIRED, a web site dedicated to helping students take direct action for positive environmental change. To kick off the launch of this online education and advocacy forum, Miles Electric Vehicles has also announced that it is partnering with NO GAS REQUIRED to promote the MILES Revolution Video Contest, which gives students the opportunity to create environmentally-themed videos for a chance to win $1,000 for themselves and a free MILES all-electric/no-emissions car for their college or university.
“Students are an extremely influential demographic and are at the vanguard of the sustainability movement,” said Miles Electric Vehicles CEO Jeff Boyd. “The MILES Revolution Video Contest asks students to use their creativity to spread the message of zero emissions transportation alternatives and make a difference on their campuses.”
Boyd added that nogasrequired.com offers an interactive forum where students can learn and dialogue about the environment and resources that help them take action to build a carbon-neutral society.
Students interested in participating in the contest should view the “MILES Revolution” video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emsaAXN2cDI then interpret it in their own unique style through any medium of expression (provided that it can ultimately be recorded in a video format). Entries should be submitted on the “UPLOAD” area of the NO GAS REQUIRED site. Qualifying submissions will then be posted by the NO GAS REQUIRED staff on YouTube for public viewing.
The five students whose works of video art garner the most views on YouTube will each be awarded a $1,000 cash scholarship. Each will also have a MILES all-electric vehicle donated to their college or university, in his or her name, to help reduce the campus’ carbon footprint. (Based on typical fleet driving, a university can eliminate roughly 12,000 pounds of annual carbon emissions for each gas-powered vehicle it replaces with an all-electric car or truck.)
To enter, visit www.nogasrequired.com and click on the “CREATE” tab for rules, eligibility, submission upload instructions, and contest-related downloads, including marketing materials (logos, tag, flyers, etc.) to promote participation at your college or university.
