Minnesota’s Clean Energy Resource Teams want your vote for their Clean + Green Video Shorts Contest.

The contest is part of the upcoming Clean Energy Convergence, Feb 2-3 in St. Cloud, Minnesota (disclosure – we’re doing an ad swap with CERTs to promote their upcoming conference, but this post isn’t part of the deal). Finalists will be screened at the conference, and the winner will get $500.

At the risk of swaying the outcome, I’ll avoid sharing my thoughts on the individual videos. Some are really quite good, some are endearingly amateurish, and some manage to link energy conservation and flatulence in a way that’s probably never occurred to you before.

If you’re unable to attend the conference, we’ll post the winning video here on Feb. 4.
