Below is a press release from the Reading Municipal Light Department:
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 4th and 5th at 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.
Congratulations to Wilmington’s winners:
1st place – Evan Walsh
2nd place – Griffin Kelley
3rd place – Aidan Lindquist
1st place – Henrique Zancanaro
2nd place – Ella Gregorio
3rd place – Shanna White
RMLD would like to thank the teachers and faculty at participating schools for their continued partnership in this important educational initiative.
