Poster Contest

Kids — win a Kindle Fire. Teachers — win an Amazon gift card and an Energy Learning Experience!

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 proud to offer our annual Electrical Safety Poster Contest! To participate, elementary-aged students simply create a poster showing how they are safe around electricity. The poster contest will run through March 6, 2023. The overall-winning poster will be featured in Colorado Country Life magazine and on electrical-safety advertising during May, which is National Electrical Safety Month. Each grade-level winner receives a Kindle Fire, the winning student’s teacher receives an Amazon gift card, and for the classroom – Story Behind the Switch!
