Rawhide Elementary students get creative, learn and win

Students at Rawhide Elementary School near Gillette, WY, got creative with their crayons and markers for the Safety Poster Contest sponsored by Basin Electric. The contest offers an opportunity to teach the pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students about why safety is so important. It is also a chance for Basin Electric to thank the school, staff and parents of the children.

Dry Fork Station employees gave two electrical safety presentations before the students started working on their posters during art class. When the posters were finished, operations staff from Dry Fork Station voted on first, second and third place winners for each class.

An ice cream social and awards ceremony was then held at the school where prizes were handed out. The first place prize winners were given a Nabi educational tablet.

Rawhide Elementary School is in close proximity to Dry Fork Station and has participated in the poster contests in years past during the construction of the power plant.
