The publication with the largest circulation in Texas is offering area students and schools a chance to win $4,000 in prizes by telling a story.
The magazine is Texas Co-op Power, which is mailed to more than 1.2 million homes and businesses served by electric cooperatives - including more than 140,000 households in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that are served by CoServ Electric.
Through its 2013 Co-op Teens Power Texas video contest, the magazine is challenging students in the state to interview people in their communities who remember the days before electricity. The first-place winner will receive $1,500, and the winning school will receive $1,000.
Any student in grades 6-12 whose parents or legal guardians are current members of an electric cooperative in Texas is eligible to participate. The deadline to enter is April 1. For complete details, visit the contest site here.
