Sierra Electric Awards Local Students for 2016 Safety Coloring Contest
Truth or Consequences, Friday, May 6, 2016
Sierra Electric Cooperative, Inc. visited Sierra Elementary School and Manzano Christian School today and awarded students who participated and won 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Overall prizes in the 2016 Safety Coloring Contest. The contest is sponsored by electric cooperatives throughout the state of New Mexico in conjunction with the New Mexico Marketing & Member Services Association. Sierra Electric had 180 students in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades color the posters earlier this year and afterwards the employees of the cooperative judged the posters and chose the winners. The overall winner was chosen to represent Sierra Electric for the statewide competition. The coloring contest is one of the ways Sierra Electric shows support for their community and educates children on the importance of safety around power lines.
