"QUIET ON THE SET! ACTION! " Junior and senior high school students can call


out those words and get paid for it—up to $10,000 in college scholarships. Whether as a director, actor, animator, singer—in the Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives (TSE) Go Go GEO Scholarship Video Challenge, they can call the shots. Te Challenge is a two-tier competition with


multiple scholarship opportunities at regional and state levels. Students and their schools will be awarded almost $60,000 in scholarships and grants. "Tis contest is like nothing we've done before.


It joins technology and energy innovation with the spark of creativity and inspiration," says OEC's Manager of Member Services Jack Ferrell. "It's about getting young people to think about energy solutions and how to create a better, more energy efficient world. And we want them to tell us about it in their own language." Te challenge officially launches Jan. 7, but


information can already be accessed at the website www.GoGoGeoChallenge.com. Students are challenged to use their creativity


to produce a one to three minute video about geothermal energy. Information on the contest website offers participants a general understanding of the seven geothermal message themes they should construct their videos around. All videos must be submitted by midnight on


Feb. 22, 2013. While videography will play a part in the overall judging, creativity, message delivery and accuracy are of greater importance.
