Value of Public Power Radio Contest

Thank you to all our communities who submitted radio scripts. The window for submissions has closed. We’ll update this page with any future contests!

ElectriCities wants to help you promote the value of public power in your backyard, and we have a fun radio advertisement contest to help you spread the word!

Public power communities in North Carolina can enter the contest by sending in your best 30-second radio advertisement script that showcases the benefits of public power. The script should be fun, localized, and brief (a typical 30-second radio ad is only 75-85 words!).

One winning community will be selected, and ElectriCities will work with our radio partner to professionally record the radio advertisement script and air the advertisement in that member’s backyard in the lead-up to—and through—Public Power Week. All at no cost to you!

Who: Public power utilities in North Carolina
