The organization Now Debate This is giving away more than $250,000 in scholarships to students who address the big question of 2009: How can the U.S. achieve energy independence? At Confab — the social network for Now Debate This — members are collaborating to arrive at real solutions.

With text boxes on the left column of the main page, Confab has embedded a series of energy-related widgets. Recent posts from alternative energy blogs and the White House give members at-a-glace information about what’s new.

The latest Now Debate This contest asks what your top priority would be as President of the United States. Members are submitting their essays as blog posts on Confab, establishing a great channel between the main website and the social network. Featured submissions are spotlighted on the main page.
