Third place winner, Charlie Roshak, accepting his award from EWEB Commissioner John Barofsky. 


The results are in! 

EWEB received 275 stellar submittals from local 5th graders for our Annual Public Power Week Poster Contest. EWEB staff narrowed the posters down to the top 20. Customers and social media followers selected the top five to receive awards. 

Public Power Week is an annual celebration of customer-owned, community-powered utilities like EWEB. Because of our ownership structure, all decisions at EWEB are made with the community in mind.

This year’s poster contest theme was “Brought to you by electricity.” Our first-place winner illustrated how the world runs on electricity. Other awardees showed how electricity powers daily life.

Congratulations to all our award winners and participants.
