Have you wondered about the flock of H.E.A.T. Squad signs and the blue flamingo in town?The NeighborWorks HEAT Squad is taking flight with a five-week contest that will reward the lucky winner with $1,000 towards home energy efficiency improvement. The campaign hatched at the Rutland Farmers Market on Saturday, June 14th.
In ten towns, “flocks” of H.E.A.T. Squad signs and a blue flamingo will appear in a high-traffic area and be left to roost for one week.
Those with eagle eyes keen enough to find the nesting ground of the flock and smart enough to call the HEAT Squad will be entered to win $1,000 towards home energy improvements.
The public is encouraged to keep their binoculars on hand and to call or email Lori at the H.E.A.T. Squad when they spot the flock: 802-438-2303 or email@example.com. The contest will end . Call for contest details or visit heatsquad.org.
