Power Down for the Planet Winning Videos

It seems to be Video Wednesday around here. Lost in the Earth Day party we had here on TreeHugger was the announcement from Power Down for the Planet on their video competition winners. College campuses were challenged to pledge for better computer power consumption habits, as well as to get creative in talking about why cutting power where possible is so important. The Grand Prize winner is this video by team ArcaneMind. But we think there were a few other entries that could have taken the cake. Click through to see them.It was an unfortunately quiet competition - only 9 videos are on the YouTube page - especially compared to the big turn out for the EPA's water conservation video competition. Interesting difference, considering this competition was also in conjunction with EPA's Energy Star program. Regardless, the videos are pretty great. Here are a couple we really like:
