(September 7, 2022) - Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative’s annual poster contest is underway. To enter, students are asked to design a poster using the theme “MLEC: Building Brighter Futures and Making Connections Possible.” There are two grade divisions: K-2 and 3-5 with prizes in each division in each county served by MLEC (Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Lewis and Perry counties).
Winners will be notified by mail and recognized at MLEC member meetings in October. Prizes include $25 and a bicycle for first, $25 for second, $20 for third, and honorable mention winners receive $10. Additionally, all first-place winners will be entered in the five-county contest and compete for a $100 prize!
The deadline for entering is September 22. Submissions must be turned in at the student’s school office by 1 p.m. or directly to MLEC by 4:30 p.m. Entry forms are being delivered to area schools and are available online at www.mlec.com/poster-contest. Home-school students are also eligible.
- The title “MLEC: Building Brighter Futures and Making Connections Possible” must be on the poster. (Students are asked to illustrate ways they see MLEC powering their home, school or community with electricity and broadband.)
- Poster Size is 22x14 (one-half of a full-size poster board).
- If materials are applied to the poster, it should be no thicker than 2 inches when laid flat.
- Student’s name, gender, parent/guardian names, address, phone number, grade, school, and teacher must be on the back of the poster.
