T. Boone Pickens has seen enough of his ads on TV; now he wants to see some of yours.

Last Thursday, Pickens posted a video describing a Citizens Video Contest, calling for Americans to record a one-minute video conveying the need for renewable energy initiatives and environment conservation. Pickens asks for creativity, but the crux of the video needs to be directed toward politicians, who have told Pickens that in order for renewable energy to become a priority in the minds of elected officials, they have to see how much it means to American citizens.

Pickens’ addressed the video to his “Army,” which is a 1 million-strong group of people who have signed a petition on Pickens' Web site, calling for the end of America’s dependency on foreign oil and a new focus on alternative fuels.

The contest runs from Friday, Oct. 17, until midnight on Oct. 25. The winning video will be selected by the entire Army and announced one week before the election. The video will then be sent directly to the candidates and run on Pickens’ BooneCam.

It won’t take a lot of time to make your voice heard, and this is a pretty unique opportunity to reach your politicians. It’s at least worth a shot!
