Home Energy Makeover Game
Come show us just how much you know about the Home Performance business. Each contestant gets their own coded fob and the system keeps track of everyone’s answers. At the end of the game, the one with the highest score wins. The faster you correctly answer a question, the more points you get. It’s challenging and fun with some great prizes.
