2024 Elementary School Electrical Safety Art Contest

Get those creative juices flowing! Our annual art contest is back! This year, we’re accepting more than just posters. If you have creative ideas that are more than drawing, we’ll take those too!

Find out more about our contest below, and good luck to everyone who enters! Still working on your entry? Don't worry, we're extending the deadline until May 1 so you've got more time to complete your submission!

Submit drawings, written work, videos and more before May 1!

How does the Art Contest work?

The theme this year is outdoor electrical safety.

We’re looking for students in grades 1-6 to help us educate people about outdoor electrical safety through art like posters, videos, songs, poems, or any other creative art form for the chance to WIN.

That's right - you could win!

Winners will receive a $50 Indigo gift card, an Enova prize pack, and their artwork will be featured on social media, on bill inserts, in advertising, and in Enova’s school safety presentations.
