MLGW News Release
MLGW announces the 2020 Student Poster Contest focusing on Internet Safety
September 30, 2020
– Making the Internet Safe One Byte at a Time

Shelby County students, grab your paints, brushes, colored pencils, computers, crayons, glue and glitter! It’s time to enter the Memphis Light, Gas and Water Student Poster Contest. The utility is once again sponsoring its annual Student Art Poster Contest for Shelby County school children in grades K-12. The theme? Internet safety!

The event is designed to give all students the opportunity to think about internet safety and to share their talents and ideas. The students’ artwork will help to increase awareness about the need for internet safety and the wise use of online resources, which will in turn help people recognize internet hazards and safe approaches thanks to Internet Safety Superheroes.

The art entries will be judged on their ability to clearly and creatively communicate the theme, “Internet Safety: The Power Bytes – Making the Internet Safe One Byte at a Time.”

Entries will be judged in four categories: Elementary school (grades K-2 and 3-5), middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12). Each category winner and also each winner’s teacher will receive a $125 award. All contestants receive a certificate of participation. 

All children in grades K-12, attending ANY Shelby County school and even home schooling, are eligible. All entries must be submitted no later than 4 p.m., Friday, November 20, 2020. For general rules, specific art form rules, submission process, judging and awards, please visit
