2017 JCPB Calendar Contest Winners


            The Johnson City Power Board has concluded its 2017 Calendar Contest in celebration of Public Power Week. Public Power Week recognizes the benefits of living within our Nation’s publicly owned electric utility systems. The contest was open to all fourth-graders currently enrolled in public schools, private schools, and homeschooling programs in the Power Board’s service territory. The theme of the 2017 calendar is “Electrical Safety” and features drawings by our local students showing off their understanding of how to stay safe around electricity. Pictures were judged according to creativity, quality, relevance to theme, and overall appeal by JCPB employees. Seven Washington County Schools, four Johnson City Schools, and one Sullivan County School participated in the contest. From those schools, thirteen students won, and each of their entries were used to represent a calendar month. The winners are as follows: Ally Fields - Fall Branch Elementary, Madison Fletcher and Isabelle Francisco - Gray Elementary, Blake Delph, Jack Johns, and James Mink - Jonesborough Elementary, Cierra Dials, Bailey Henson, Annie Seivers - Lake Ridge Elementary, Landon Covely and Calvin Lee - Miller Perry, Anisha Gupta - Towne Acres, and Caden Rodgers - University School. Each winner will receive a prize, and the schools with the most winners will receive a Rita’s Italian Ice Party. This year’s grand prize winners are Jonesborough Elementary and Lake Ridge Elementary with three winners each. Calendars will be available at the end of October at the Johnson City Power Board (2600 Boones Creek Rd, Johnson City, TN 37615) and online at www.jcpb.com.
