Climate Savers Computing Kicks Off Earth Hour Power Management Twitter Contest
Mar 19, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI), the international consortium focused on reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of information and communications technologies (ICT), has announced that its Earth Hour 2012 Retweet for Power Management Contest will run from March 23 through March 30.
Winners will be announced on CSCI's Twitter and Facebook pages on Tuesday, April 3, the group noted in a release.
CSCI said that it started the contest in 2011 to raise awareness of the environmental and financial benefits of using power management on laptops, PCs and servers, and in response to Earth Hour's call for people and organizations to do more for the planet all year long. People participated in the contest by following CSCI on Twitter, retweeting CSCI contest tweets, and taking the CSCI pledge to use power management at home and at work.
In 2012 there are even more ways to win. In addition to Twitter, people can enter by liking CSCI's Facebook page and by sharing CSCI's Facebook contest post with their Facebook friends. People who retweet, take the CSCI power management pledge, and like and share on Facebook will have 10 chances to win a prize donated by CSCI members.
"We invite everyone to join us in celebrating Earth Hour 2012 by turning their power management on and by participating in this year's CSCI Retweet for Power Management Contest," said George O. Goodman, executive director, CSCI.
