About the Competition
Do it in the Dark is a month long competition between the students who live in Parkside, Residence, and RLC to see who can save the most energy and water in the month of October. The savings are calculated as a percentage of each team’s usage to keep the competition fair. Each week, the team that saves the most energy and water over a seven day period will win a pizza party. At the end of the month, the team that reduces electric and water use the most will get a night in the Univeristy Student Union’s game area.
