WE ARE EXTENDING THE COMPETITION

As you may be aware we are running a competition where you can win £7,000 worth of double glazed windows as part of Big Energy Saving Week. If you follow the link you will see also the Energy Smart Kids Booklet is a FREE download! This is a fun and educational booklet that teaches kids some of the basics about energy efficiency; at the very least this could help keep them entertained for a couple of hours over half term!

With this in mind why not get your child or a young relative to come up with a great new energy efficient gadget or idea that you can enter into the competition to win £7,000 worth of windows? Hopefully the energy booklet has given them some inspirational ideas that they want to draw, colour and share online.

My 9 year old cousin came up with this very unique idea that he called ‘The Wobbler Bulb’. It is kind of similar to a miner’s helmet, but the bulb generates its own energy by the wire within wobbling as the person wearing it walks around. It is a crazy idea, but is there some theory behind this? Maybe you could build this?

Could a child you know create something better than ‘The Wobbler Bulb’? If you think they could, download the Energy Smart Kids Booklet here and enter their invention! By entering you go into a prize draw to win not only £7,000 worth of double glazed windows, but you will also be in with a chance of winning an energy efficiency pack, containing numerous different energy efficient gadgets and information. You can enter via Twitter (share a photo/drawing @anglianhome) or by posting it onto the blog in the comments panel at the bottom of the page.

As Big Energy Saving Week has been so successful with lots of conversations happening online and now the kids are on half-term and bursting with energy, we have extended the competition to run until next Saturday. This gives you plenty of time to get the kids drawing and inventing (you could even have a go yourself)!  Just remember entrants must have permission from the homeowner.
