Find the Flock and enter to win $1,000 for energy improvements!

RUTLAND, Vt.—The NeighborWorks H.E.A.T. Squad is taking flight with a five-week contest that will reward the lucky winner with  $1,000 towards home energy efficiency improvement. The campaign hatched at the Rutland Farmers Market on Saturday, June 14th.

In ten towns, “flocks” of H.E.A.T. Squad signs and a blue flamingo will appear in a high-traffic area and be left to roost for one week. Those with eagle eyes keen enough to find the nesting ground of the flock and smart enough to call the H.E.A.T. Squad will be entered to win $1,000 towards home energy improvements. The public is encouraged to keep their binoculars on hand and to call or email Lori at the H.E.A.T. Squad when they spot the flock: 802-438-2303 x 227 or [email protected]. The contest will end July 18. Call for contest details or visit heatsquad.org.

Over 800 Rutland County residents have already participated in the H.E.A.T. Squad program saving an average $1,000 a year or $800,000 every year in Rutland County.  Join the Flock of Happy H.E.A.T.
