GMP needs a cow nameSeptember 11,2013Students asked to
name GMP’s cow
Green Mountain Power is offering an ice cream party to the child who wins its “name that cow” contest.
The as-yet-nameless animatronic cow will be on display at GMP’s Energy Innovation Center, which is expected to open this fall on Merchants Row in downtown Rutland.
The 7-foot long, fur-covered machine will — through a series of conversational scripts — discuss how cow manure can be used to generate electricity.
Children 12 and younger can submit names, with an ice cream party for the winner and his or her class at school, or for the family if the child is home-schooled.
Names can be submitted by mail: Cow Name Contest, GMP EIC, 67 Merchants Row, Suite 104, Rutland Vt. 05701, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries should include the suggested cow name, as well as the name, town, age, school name or home school and phone number of the child submitting the suggestion.
Teachers or parents may send entries from multiple children but should identify each child’s entry separately.
The deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Nov. 30.MORE IN This Just InHAVANA — Daniela Martinez long figured that someday she would leave the struggles of daily life... Full StoryPESHAWAR, Pakistan — Six militants were killed in a U.S. Full Story
