MLGW News Release
MLGW honors winners of its 2023 Art Contest
May 13, 2024

Memphis Light, Gas and Water honored winners of the utility’s 2023 “ElectRock” Poster Art Contest at a Board of Commissioners meeting Wednesday, May 1. Winning students and their teachers were recognized during the Board meeting; each received a gift card.

The theme of the 2023 contest was electric generation and distribution. Students were asked to create a new, MLGW Power League Superhero named “ElectRock.” Entries were judged by a non-MLGW panel of volunteers. Submissions were judged based on artistic merit and creativity, representation of the theme character, use of the MLGW logo and approach to the contest theme.

Here are the winning students for each age category and the name of their school.

  • K – Grade 2 winner: Marley Harris, second grade, Balmoral Ridgeway Elementary School
  • Grade 3 – 5 winner: Anvi Vijendra, fifth grade, Bailey Station Elementary School
  • Grade 6 - 8 winner: Sedra Murshed, eighth grade, Bon Lin Middle School
  • Grade 9 – 12 winner: James Mooneyham, eleventh grade, Collierville High School

Winners were congratulated on their creativity, originality and hard work by MLGW’s president and executive staff in an auditorium packed with attendees. Winning students received a canvas print of their artwork and a trophy alongside the gift card. For pictures of the contestants and their winning posters please visit the Flickr album here:
