The NPEI Safety Poster Contest is back!

The weather is starting to warm up again and we're all getting back to doing some of our favourite activities. We know everyone has been spending a lot of time around their homes lately, and it's important to make sure you are keeping safe while doing so!

NPEI is looking for students to get creative and have some fun by designing a poster that illustrates a positive safety message. Your poster may be featured in some of NPEI's upcoming safety campaigns and advertising materials!

Students in grades 1-8 who reside within the NPEI service territory (Niagara Falls, Pelham, Lincoln and West Lincoln) will be eligible to submit a poster for a chance to win a $100 gift card and NPEI gift basket. One winner will be selected in each of the following 3 categories; grades 1-3, 4-6 and 7-8.

 The Theme of Your Poster Should Centre Around "Electrical Safety Around the Home."

To help you come up with ideas for your poster, you can check out our "Lucky the Squirrel" safety videos here. As well, some positive safety messages you could incorporate are:

  • Never put fingers or objects into electrical outlets
  • Keep metal objects out of toasters
  • Don't plug too many things into one outlet or power strip
  • Never pull a plug out by its cord
  • Never use anything with a power cord or plug around water
  • Stay away from green transformers and power lines
  • Never fly kites near power lines

Your Poster:

  • Must be created and drawn by the student - no computer images or help from parents - and should communicate an electrical safety message
  • Must be on size 8.5"X11" paper
  • Must be submitted with an official entry form (found below)
  • Will be judged on creativity, artistic quality and the safety message
