Where can I get the details?

Like, is there an age limit on this? And where should I submit my video? And, most importantly, what's the due date?

... Oh, and, one more question -- will there be a test on any of this?!

Meh... there was a link for more info, wasn't there?

Unfortunately, it doesn't matter anyway because according to the official contest rules,

"Eligible Participants may enter the Promotion between December 2, 2010, beginning at 10 a.m. CST and March 15, 2011 ending at 11:59 p.m. CST...

We missed the due date. Bummer dude.

On a related note, a hockey-loving friend sent me this article today on the RiverCentre and Xcel Energy Center's award-winning Leadership in Sustainability program.

In the first year of the program, the facilities cut their garbage output by 48% while raising recycling rates by 41%. The second phase of the project

"aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the facilities by 80 percent and make them 20 percent more efficient than average within three years time."

That's no small feat!
