The contest has provided important electrical safety education to students for over 25 years
Reading, MA — Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) recently honored 36 students from twelve local elementary schools in Reading, North Reading, Wilmington, and Lynnfield for their winning entries into RMLD’s elementary student art contest. Virtual award ceremonies were held on March 3 and 10. The awards ceremonies were presented by General Manager Coleen O’Brien and RMLD Board members including Chair Robert Coulter, Commissioner Philip Pacino, and Commissioner David Talbot.
For the contest, fourth-grade students were asked to design a poster demonstrating their knowledge of topics presented in an educational video produced by the RMLD including electrical safety, how electricity gets to the home, and electricity and the environment.
A first, second, and third-place winner was selected from each participating school based on the artwork and message. Each winning student was awarded a Barnes and Noble gift card.
In recognition of the effort local schools put forth in implementing the contest, each participating school was awarded a gift certificate for art supplies. RMLD would like to thank the teachers and faculty for their continued partnership in this important educational initiative.
