EPA Launches Prize Challenge to Showcase Electric Transportation in Action

Did you hear? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched "My Electric Ride: An EV Transportation Video Challenge," an exciting prize competition that encourages people to share their personal experiences with electric transportation.

The challenge aims to showcase the real-world experiences of those who use electrified transportation in everyday life and help inform the public about more sustainable transportation.

Interested participants are asked to submit a short (one- to two-minute) video for a chance to win up to $3,000.

Participants can submit videos in one of three categories:

Personal Mobility: Electric two- and three-wheel personal mobility devices such as e-bikes, e-trikes, e-scooters, or e-cargo bikes.

Electric Vehicles: Electric vehicles such as cars, trucks, or SUVs.

Electric Buses: Electric buses such as school buses, shuttle buses, or transit buses.

The videos will be judged on their creativity, originality, and effectiveness in conveying the positive aspects of electric transportation. EPA will select up to nine winning videos, with each category having a first--, second-, and third-place winner. Selected videos may be featured on EPA's website and social media channels.

Information about the video challenge and instructions on how to submit a video can be found on the EV Transportation Video Challenge webpage.

Submissions are due by Jan. 23.

By way of background: The transportation sector is currently the largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States.

Electrifying transportation is key to a more sustainable future by moving people and goods more efficiently. With their increased energy efficiency and zero tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles (including battery electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles) can help improve air quality in communities and lower total GHG emissions.
