Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. has announced the launch of its third annual Wires Down Video Challenge to raise awareness about the importance of electrical safety among elementary school-aged children. From Sept. 8 until Nov. 14, elementary students in public and private schools across BGE’s electric service area may submit 30- to 45-second videos of their interpretation of BGE’s “Wires Down” electrical safety commercial for the chance to win up to $10,000 to fund a school-enrichment program. At least one winning school will be chosen from each participating county. Since inception of the Wires Down Video Challenge, BGE has awarded $50,000 to 19 schools. The best video in each county wins $1,000, with $3,000 each for best musical performance, most creative and most effort, $5,000 for the Spotlight Award and $10,000 for the Star Power Award, the overall winner.
