PHOTOS: RMLD Recognizes West & North Students Following Annual Art Contest

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 February 5thand 26that RMLD’s office in Reading. Awards were presented by members of RMLD’s Board of Commissioners.

For the contest, fourth grade students were asked to design a poster demonstrating their knowledge of topics presented in an educational video produced by RMLD. The video covers 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 generating plants 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 art supplies.

RMLD would like to thank the teachers and faculty at participating schools for their continued partnership in this important educational initiative.
