Electricity helps us power the things we do every day like watch TV, play video games, turn on the lights and use our computers. However, the same power that we use to learn, cook and have fun can be dangerous if not used carefully. Norris is asking our young consumers to keep electrical safety a top priority and to help us remind our family, friends and neighbors to be safe around electricity.
 Hey Kids! We Need YOUR Help!
Get out your crayons, paints and markers!
Design a poster that shows a way that everyone can stay safe around electricity and send it to us. One winner from each age group will receive a prize and have their photo taken. Posters and photos will be displayed online, in print and in District offices.
Open to preschool through 5th grade students residing in or attending a school within Norris Public Power District’s service area.
Deliver your poster to any District office located in Hebron, Roca, Beatrice or Seward or you may mail your poster to:
Vicky Jurgens
