Elementary-Aged Students Celebrate National Electrical Safety Month with One-Of-A-Kind Posters
May 11, 2020, Falcon, CO – For Mountain View Electric Association, Inc, (MVEA), safety is the number-one priority. To illustrate the importance of National Electrical Safety month this May, MVEA hosted their fifth-annual Electrical Safety Poster Contest for kids in grades kindergarten through fifth. MVEA’s poster contest is held each year January – March, so kids created their original posters before the COVID-19 stay-at-home order was in place. The winners were chosen in April and are now being featured to highlight National Electrical Safety Month. This year’s winning poster was created by Conner, a fourth-grade student at Big Sandy School.
In addition to MVEA’s overall poster contest winner, a winner from each grade level was selected. Each of the winners received a Kindle Fire, and the winners’ teacher received an Amazon gift card.
