In an apparent bid to promote electric vehicles, the Environmental Protection Agency is offering people the chance to win money by submitting a video about their positive experiences utilizing EVs.
“Help us showcase the benefits of electric transportation! Send us your short (one- to two-minute) personal videos that convey your positive experiences using electric transportation in everyday life. Choose from one of the following categories, then get creative!” a webpage about the competition reads.
There are three categories in the competition: a category on electric buses; a category on electric vehicles like cars, trucks, and SUVs; and a category that covers “personal mobility” items such as electric scooters and bikes. In each category, the first-place prize is $3,000, the second-place prize is $1,000, and the third-place prize is $500.
“Learning about the benefits of electrified transportation and sharing this first-hand knowledge can play a critical part in getting us on the path to a sustainable future. This is your opportunity to share your experiences and your enthusiasm for electric vehicles with others who are curious,” the page about the competition states.
“This continues to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen,” Matt Whitlock tweeted in response to a tweet in which the EPAair X account promoted the video competition. “If you have to pay people to share stories about electric vehicles working well to justify your big government ‘green transition’ it might not be going that well.”
