As part of National Electrical Safety Month, Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services (PPCS) and the Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association (WECA) teamed up in May to host an electrical safety poster contest that was open to all third graders in Pierce and Pepin Counties.
Azalyn Larson of Caddie Woodlawn Elementary was awarded the first-place prize and a $40 gift card, and Hailee Thoner of St. Francis Elementary was awarded the second-place prize and a $30 gift card. Larson also received a $25 gift card from WECA for her first-place finish.
PPCS has forwarded their posters to WECA for judging in the statewide contest. The WECA statewide contest is open to children of PPCS members. WECA will award a Chromebook to the first-place winner, a $100 dollar gift card to the second-place winner, and a $75 dollar gift card to the third-place winner.
