At MVEA, safety comes first! To increase electrical safety awareness for our mini members and to assist teachers as they talk to their students about electrical safety, we’re holding an Electrical Safety Poster Contest for children, grades K – 5. To participate, K-5 students simply create a poster showing how they are safe around electricity. Posters are judged for creativity, neatness, and the overall safety message. All entries need to include the artist’s first and last name, grade, school, parent or guardian’s contact information, and address. Mail-in your finished drawing to MVEA. All entries must be turned in by Monday, March 7, 2022.

If you have any questions please contact Erica Meyer at 719-494-2654.
