Contest Promotes Energy Efficiency, Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

SEATTLE Seattle City Light is looking for young artists to participate in a Shrinking Bigfoot art contest. The utility is asking them to share their ideas for shrinking their carbon footprints by reducing their energy consumption.

Using electricity wisely reduces your impact on the environment and saves you money, Superintendent Jorge Carrasco said. Im looking forward to seeing how the young people in our community illustrate this important point.

Twelve grand prize winners will have their artwork featured in a calendar that will be sold to benefit Project Share, City Lights emergency utility assistance program. Project Share provides one-time assistance to people who need help with their utility bill.

Grand prize winners also will receive a one-year family membership of their choice to either Woodland Park Zoo, the Pacific Science Center, the Seattle Aquarium or the Seattle Childrens Museum; a science kit filled with 125 green science projects; and a Skagit River boat tour for up to four family members.

Every child who participates will receive a Seattle City Light backpack complete with a safety flashlight and tips on saving energy and preparing for a power outage.

To enter, an artist must live in Seattle City Lights service territory and be in grade 3-6. The entry must by original artwork by the student, no electronic entries. It must be signed by a parent or guardian who is a City Light customer. Only one entry per student. Complete rules, energy tips and entry forms are available on City Lights contest page at Calendar Contest.
