“Energy Basics in 90 seconds”

UH Energy is excited to announce the 1st ANNUAL E-90 student energy video competition! This competition is open to all current University of Houston students. Participants must create a video, up to 90 seconds, based on an energy-related topic (sample topics provided below). Winners will be announced at the Energy Banquet hosted by the Energy Coalition on April 19th at the UH Hilton.


The primary goal of the E-90 Competition is to educate about aspects of energy in an entertaining and creative way.  We challenge UH students to create videos that explain a complex energy-related concept in an “edutaining” way.



  • Participants must be students currently enrolled at UH.
  • Videos can be created by individuals or groups of up to 4 students. Only one submission is allowed per student or team.
  • Videos should not exceed 90 seconds in length (not including title screen).
  • Videos may be created using any production technique (iPhone, digital video, etc) and in any genre (live action, musical, animation, etc)
  • Videos must be original and unpublished works.
  • Participants must obtain appropriate copyright authorization in advance on all clips, photos or music used.
  • Assistance from professional videographers or professional editors is not allowed.
  • Participants must agree that all videos submitted become the property of UH Energy and can be used for future promotional or educational purposes.



A panel of judges from UH, the energy industry and media will be looking for “edutaining” videos that are creative, entertaining and informative. Participants are encouraged to create videos that are engaging and tell an informative story. All videos will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Educational relevance: Video should be informative and provide relevant, accurate content
  • Entertainment/Storytelling ability: Video should be engaging and tell a story that people want to watch
  • Creativity/originality
  • Quality of video

The top 5 videos will be screened at the Energy Banquet on April 19 th . The audience will vote live to select the “People’s Choice” prize winner.
