Who is Captain Mercaptan?
BGE Natural Gas Safety Hero Challenge
In conjunction with the BGE’s electric safety contest, the Wires Down Video Challenge, the company is now launching a gas safety competition for elementary schools in its service area.
The “Who is Captain Mercaptan?” Natural Gas Safety Hero Challenge encourages public and private elementary schools (grades K-5) to create drawings of BGE’s new gas safety hero, Captain Mercaptan.
The downloadable entry kit, available at BGEgashero.com, includes a brief lesson on natural gas and outlines the details of the contest. Schools have the chance to win up to $10,000 for creating the best drawing of what they think Captain Mercaptan should look like. Additionally, the winning image will be used in a kids-focused ad for natural gas safety!
Entries are accepted from February 17 to April 14, 2014. Visit BGEgashero.com for more information.
