The 2022-2023 Art Contest is open for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
The theme for this year's art contest is "The day the lights came on." We're asking students to imagine how life changed the day electricity first arrived for many families in Northwest Georgia in the 1930's and 1940's. Learn more about the history of rural electrification at NGEMC.
The deadline to enter is Dec. 9, 2022.
Winners will be selected from two age categories: kindergarten through second grades and third through fifth grades.
Classrooms with first place entries will receive $200 for school supplies.
Winning students receive a $50 gift card.
Contest results will be announced in early 2023.
