The Broward Mega, money-saving, record-breaking, wild water Switcheroo Contest is ready to make some lucky Broward homeowner a big winner
The Broward Water Partnership (a collaboration of 18 local governments and water utilities) will award one lucky homeowner with new water and energy saving appliances including a refrigerator, washer, dryer, dishwasher, irrigation system and water-conserving plumbing fixtures in for the kitchen and bath.
But winning won’t be easy. As part of the application process, the Broward Water Partnership is asking applicants to provide more than a basic application. They’re asking people to think about water conservation, to explain why it’s important, and why they should be selected as the big winner.
The submissions can be anything: a jingle or a poem, employ social media or include a web-site, or even a poster, illustration or photograph.
The contest rules, application and evaluation criteria are all available at bwpSwitcheroo.com.
As part of the promotion, the Broward Water Partnership will have a Facebook contest, a Twitter contest and a YouTube contest….each with separate cash prizes.
“Our toilet rebate and conservation education program has already engaged thousands of Broward residents,” said Jennifer Jurado, Director of Broward County’s Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division which coordinates water resource planning and conservation initiatives countywide, including the Conservation Pays Program. “The Switcheroo will demonstrate how choosing Water-Sense® and EnergyStar® appliances and fixtures provide immediate and long-term water and money savings as part of basic practices at home.”
From March 1 – 30 residents who live in Broward Water Partnership communities can apply online or at dropbox locations. The rules, the competition evaluation criteria and the application can be found at BWPSwitcheroo.com.
The Switcheroo Contest is sponsored by: BrandSmartUSA, Outfront Media, the Miami Herald Broward, WaterOptimizer, CBS4 and Cox Radio Easy95 and Hot105
This program is part of the continuing ConservationPays.com initiative to educate, engage and sup-port Broward residents and business in water conservation efforts. Some Partnership members are providing low flow aerators and showerheads for free and some are providing toilet rebates—up to $100 per toilet for homes, businesses and nonprofits.
