Winning posters for EWEB’s Public Power Week Poster Contest

October 17, 2022

EWEB commissioner Matt McRae with 1st place poster contest winner Aiden Muller.

EWEB held its Poster Contest for 5th grade students in our service territory for Public Power Week, October 2-8, receiving more than 100 entries from classrooms across the area

Public Power week celebrates the value of publicly owned utilities such as EWEB. EWEB is customer-owned and accountable to the people we serve. Unlike other utilities, your electric and water rates directly fund the energy and water we reliably deliver to you – and never enrich corporate shareholders.

The theme of this year’s contest was “Brought to you by Electricity”.  Staff narrowed down the entries to twenty. EWEB employees and our social media followers voted on the winners.

This week, EWEB commissioner Matt McRae presented 1st place winner Aiden Muller with a plaque and gift certificate during an assembly at O'Hara Catholic School in Eugene. 

Aiden Muller drew the 1st place poster

First Place: Aiden Muller, O’Hara Catholic Elementary School

Caroline Callister drew the 2nd place poster

Second Place: Caroline Callister, Coburg Community Charter School

Emma Mansfield drew the 3rd place poster

Third Place: Emma Mansfield, McCornack Elementary

Bodhi Bayes drew the 4th place poster

Fourth Place: Bodhi Bayes, Adams Elementary

Tommy Adams drew the 5th place poster

Fifth Place: Tommy Adams, River Road/ El Camino Del Rio Elementary

 Thank you to all the students who participated in the contest! You brought creativity and enthusiasm to the theme of electricity, and we are so grateful!
