Three winners of the 2015 Energy Awareness Month Poster Contest were recognized and rewarded for their entries at today’s MLGW Board of Commissioners meeting.
MLGW’s Energy Awareness Month Poster Contest (held each October) is designed to give students throughout Shelby County the opportunity to learn about saving energy. The 2015 contest focused on water conservation and each student was asked to depict their very own interpretation of water savings in art form.
Students in grades K – 12, attending any school (public, private, charter or home school) in Memphis and Shelby County is eligible to enter. Judging covered three categories: elementary school (grades K – 5), middle school (grades 6 – 8) and high school (grades 9 – 12).
The entries were judged on their ability to clearly and creatively communicate the theme "saving water." Each of the winners, along with their teacher, received a $125 gift certificate to the Art Center.
