READING, MA — Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) honored the participants and winners of its third annual public power themed high school student art contest at an awards ceremony held on October 1, 2019 at its office in Reading.

This year, students were asked to create artwork commemorating RMLD’s 125th anniversary. Four winners were selected based on the creativity of the artwork and the message that was portrayed:

Each of the winners was awarded a $75 Staples gift card for school supplies, and all other participants were given an honorable mention to thank them for their creativity and for submitting their original artwork. All participating students received a certificate for ten hours of community service for taking part in the contest.

RMLD’s Board of Commissioners will vote on which of the winning artwork will be featured on the cover of RMLD’s 2019 Annual Report at an upcoming Commission meeting. The student that is selected will receive an additional $25 Staples gift card.
