VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Students who live on campus at Valdosta State University are participating in an earth friendly competition.

One way students are cutting back on their energy use is by turning off the lights and relying on natural light.

From now until April 17, students at residence halls are competing against one another to see who can conserve the most energy. The winning dorm is selected on the greatest percentage reduction in kilowatt hours.

"Save energy," said Dr. Brian Ring. "Realize we all share energy. Five to 20 percent is our goal of decreased useage."

The winner is announced on Earth Day April 22. Georgia Power donates money for the winning dorm to have a party.
