Green Mountain Power is enlisting your child's help. The company is searching for a name for its new cow exhibit.
Believe it or not she talks!
She is part of the Energy Innovation Center in downtown Rutland. The company calls it an animatronic cow. Imagination Company in Bethel created her. She tells children how the utility uses cow manure as a source of energy.
This cow has a lot to offer, but first she needs a name.
Green Mountain Power's Betsy Ide shares more details on what is in the cow's future.
The winning namer gets an ice cream party at the Innovation Center.
12 and younger are eligible to enter the "Name that Cow Contest," which
will run through Nov. 30. Once the EIC opens, children can enter a
suggestion in person, or can send suggestions between now and Nov. 30 at
5 p.m. to Cow Name Contest, GMP EIC, 67 Merchants Row, Suite 104,
Rutland Vt. 05701, or via email to
email@example.com. 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. Click here for more information.
