READING, MA – Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) recently honored 33 students from eleven local elementary schools in Reading, North Reading, Wilmington, and Lynnfield for their winning entries into RMLD’s annual art contest. Award ceremonies were held on January 11th and 18th at RMLD’s office in Reading. Awards were presented by RMLD’s General Manager and members of the Board of Commissioners.
For the contest, third and fourth grade students were asked to design a poster demonstrating their knowledge of topics presented in an educational video produced by RMLD. The video covered electricity basics, electrical safety, and energy conservation during peak periods, which is also referred to as “shredding the peak.” Peak periods are times of high usage when the price of electricity is at its highest, and when the more inefficient and environmental impacting generators are called into action.
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, and each participating school was awarded a gift certificate for school supplies. The winning entries will be displayed at RMLD’s office for the remainder of the school year.
RMLD would like to thank the teachers and faculty at participating schools for their continued partnership in this important educational initiative.
North Intermediate winners included:
1 – Olivia Saragosa
2 – Conor Burns
3 – Ronin Uftring
West Intermediate winners included:
1 – Lillian King
2 – Nicole Botte
3 – Giovanna Queiroz
