The winning storyboard is called “Blackout”, and it was written by Gavin Hiller, age 12. Gavin’s favorite color is navy blue, his favorite subject in school is science (because it’s fun!), and if he were a member of the Megawatts superhero team, he would be Battery Storage, because he likes batteries. He was inspired to participate in the comic book competition because he likes to write. Gavin will receive a $500 cash prize, and the storyboard for “Blackout” will be transformed into a professionally developed comic book!
We loved this story because it was an exciting depiction of a real-life threat to the way we use energy today – one that many of us have experienced first-hand. We don’t want to give away the ending, but we think you’ll really love the way our superheroes handle this threat and save the day.
Stay tuned for the finished version of the Megawatts Sequel: Blackout – coming soon!
