For the 2011 NJ Go Green Challenge, we asked young people in NJ to create short public service announcements abut the importance of renewable energy. We received so many great videos from all over the state that it was hard to choose the best. A team of media professionals from the Pearson Foundation viewed every single entry. We were impressed by the passion, creativity and hard work that went into all of the videos. In fact, there were so many great entries we created a third prize-winning category — Semi-Finalist.
