UPDATE 5-26-11:  Lab Video Places Second in DOE Contest>

UPDATE:  You have fans.  Today C&E News posted a blog about the EFRC video contest.  Congratulations on a job well done!

DOE's Office of Science announced the winners of their Life at the Frontiers of Energy video contest, and the Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2 won, for its entry "Carbon in Underland," specifically for its "entertaining animation and engaging explanations of carbon sequestration." In making the announcement, Robin Hayes of the Office of Science noted the "creative, inspiring, and educational" nature of the submissions, and that they "had received rave reviews from the Office of Science leadership."

You can see all the videos and vote for your favorite (we highly recommend "Carbon in Underland"!). The Energy Frontier Research Center's video with the most votes by 5pm EST on May 24, 2011 will win the People's Choice Award, to be presented at the EFRC Summit on May 25, 2011 in Washington, DC. Hurry, and vote now!

In addition to voting, please make sure and congratulate those who contributed to the production of this video. The project was a great deal of fun and we are thrilled that the efforts have been acknowledged and rewarded!
