SALT LAKE CITY (July 26, 2021) — Jaedin Mugleston, a student in the Granite School District, won a national video competition — the National rEV Challenge — for her video about electric vehicles. The contest was co-sponsored by Rocky Mountain Power and Electrify America (EA).
Students across the country competed by creating a 30-45 second video about the future and benefits of electric vehicles. Mugleston and her teacher, JoAnne Brown, were each awarded electric bikes as a grand prize. “I learned so much about EV’s throughout the video-making process. Also, the bike is awesome, honestly so cool,” Mugleston said.
Both Mugleston and Brown are in the Rocky Mountain Power service area and participated in the “rEV” electric vehicle educational program in partnership with the National Energy Foundation (NEF). Mugleston’s winning video will be featured on the rEV (reved.org/contest) national website throughout the year.
Bowen Vogt from Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools in Nebraska also received an Honorable Mention for his video on electric vehicles. Vogt is from the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) service territory, and his video will also be featured on the rEV website.
Students will have another chance to compete in the National rEV Challenge this fall as schools across the country participate in rEV, the electrifying education experience. For more information on rEV or the National Energy Foundation, please visit reved.org or nef1.org/rev.
