North Dakota is launching an energy awareness campaign, challenging students to focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) while competing in a video contest.

The campaign announced Wednesday by Gov. Doug Burgum invites K-12 teachers and students to submit videos about the state’s oil and gas resources using skills and knowledge from STEAM.

“We know the STEAM principles are what students will need to eventually have a job in the oil field or have a job as a regulator,” said Alison Ritter, spokeswoman for the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources. “We want to cultivate that critical thinking to keep our young students in North Dakota.”

The grand prize is $1,500 for the class, plus the chance to attend the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in May 2018 to showcase the video. The first round deadline is Nov. 1.

Videos can be submitted to More information, including a video from Burgum, is available at

Entries will be judged by staff from the governor’s office, the Department of Mineral Resources and the North Dakota Petroleum Council.
