Don Burke of Burke’s Backyard fame will co-host the next Game of Champions playoff event with local Skillset Environment manager Ashley Bland on Earth Day tomorrow.
The public event promises to be entertaining with an energy-based game show that involves a quiz and a ‘Would I Lie To You’ segment where PowerPlay champions must gain the highest number of points to win the championship prize of $1000 and the title of PowerPlay Earth Day Champion.
The champions represent apprentices and trainees from around Australia who have won the monthly PowerPlay Challenge with a prize valued at $1500.
They are then eligible to compete in a series of four playoff events held on key world environment days.
Competitors for Adelaide, Sydney, Bathurst and Orange will be competing in tomorrow’s event. The public is also invited, with the chance of winning a PowerPlay Energy Saving Retrofit Kit that can help PowerPlay households reduce their usage.
Mr Bland said more than 800 young participants from around Australia registered for the PowerPlay program before registrations closed in May 2015.
Two Adelaide participants have already won the World Habitat and World Wetlands Days Game of Champions title and the $1000 prize money. The final event is on World Environment Day in June.
The Skillset PowerPlay gamification program is funded by the Federal Government’s Low Income Energy Efficiency Program.
The mobile app is being trialled by Skillset to see if it has the potential to influence and change consumer behaviour towards energy use by making energy saving a normal, everyday household practice.
Mr Bland says research findings show that those engaged in PowerPlay have higher levels of awareness and understanding about how to save energy and some are now experiencing a real reduction in their household bills.
A smaller sample group of PowerPlay households in Bathurst and Orange, who are having their energy usage monitored by Essential Energy as part of the trial program, were also invited to participate in an energy saving video competition.
The winner of this competition will be presented with a cheque for $2000 by the Mayor of Orange, John Davis, at this Friday’s event.
