Calling on all Motortopia Super Heros - need your votes

Hey everyone - need your help.

My nonprofit 'PlugNPlay' has a chance to win a $10,000 grant from Pepsi.

In October, we will be hosting our very first Innovation Weekend event. We hope to have over 700 Webelos, Boy/Girl Scouts, Explorers and Venturers join us for an incredible weekend. Each participant will have the chance to help research, design and build an all electric 1938 Ford rat rod that uses plug-in power, solar and wind for energy.

This is BIG. No one has ever built an all electric car that uses these three sources of power. No student group this large has ever built from tires up, a road worthy - street legal vehicle of this caliber. There has never been a rolling K-12 classroom that focuses on S.T.E.M, Environmental Science and Renewable Energy like this one project does.

Voting is easy and anyone age 13 or older can vote.
We need you to vote each and every day in July.

Doesn't cost anything but a swish and flick.

Please keep the votes coming for PlugNPlay:
Vote via text - Text your vote 107298 to Pepsi 73774

Appreciate the help.

Need Motortopia's SuperPowers to help make a dream a reality.

This is a very cool project and I am way behind in the stats.

I am trying to fund a high school project (multiple schools) in which they will research, design and build a 1941 Willys All Electric Hybrid.

The top 10 vote getters receive a grant from Pepsi. I would really appreciate your support.

You can vote once - every day for the month of April. Please post to Facebook, send to friends. I'll do almost anything to succeed in this program.

Thanks ~ John (39Stude)

What is 'PlugNPlay'?
The ‘PlugNPlay’ project intends to be the first step into a super hybrid educational experience. This program will produce a vehicle that uses no gasoline for power – only electricity. PlugNPlay is designed to combine renewable energy resources into a portable unit that can extend the range of any vehicle – operating solely on battery power.

Students will investigate 4 main sources of power. These ‘Power Plants’ (think green) will serve as the only source of power for the vehicle. With the main source of power being electricity from the home - we will also use wind, solar, and motion to generate the remaining. Power plants such as these already work on their own – our plan is to put them all together.

PlugNPlay will also research the use of thermal film to heat and cool the interior of the car – as well as solar powered air exchangers to keep the car cool in the summer. We plan to design a back up powersource in case the car runs out of power from the main grid before it can be charged.

Need your support. Need Your votes!!

Need your Support.
I have submitted a proposal to the Pepsi Refresh project to start a high school program researching and developing an electric vehicle.
Students will research, design and build a 1941 Willys Coupe Electric Hybrid – powered by solar, eind and motion.
It’s free to vote. (Voting starts in April)
Please join my Facebook group (PlugNPlay) and/or become friends here.
Any US Resident 13 years old or older can vote once per day – each day.
Would appreciate the support.
