Each year, Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) designates the month of May as National Electrical Safety month.

In order to help raise awareness of the importance of electrical safety, Firelands Electric Cooperative sponsored an art contest for children of members ages 3 to 14.

The top entries in each age group will have their photo published in the May issue of Ohio Cooperative Living magazine, as well receive a trophy and $10 restaurant gift card.

Firelands Electric Co-op announced the following winners in its 2018 Electrical Safety Coloring and Digital Art Contests:

Ages 3 to 4: First place, Noel Lilly of New London; Second place, Meya Foss of Perrysville

Ages 5 to 6: First place, Hadley Young of Polk; Second place, Aubrey Parr of New London

Ages 7 to 9: First place, Jayla Mead of New London; Second place, Elijah Vasey of New London

Ages 10 to 14 (digital art): First place, Hunter Mantz of New London

“This contest is a great way for the co-op to teach children about potential electrical hazards, as well as reach its future members,” said Firelands Electric’s communications and member relations specialist Tracy Gibb.

Firelands Electric, A Touchstone Energy Partner, is a member-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperative providing electric service to approximately 9,100 homes and businesses in rural areas of Ashland, Huron, Lorain and Richland counties.
