Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative invites children 12 years old and younger to submit one or more original pieces of art showing how their family benefits from electricity — from toasters to video games to automatic cat-feeders and beyond.

These young artists can use crayons, colored pencils, or markers, or even create something on a computer or tablet. There is no limit to how many entries a child can submit.

The contest is open to any child who lives in a home whose electricity is provided by NOVEC. Entries are due Tuesday, Aug. 1. Some of the art will be included in the October edition of NOVEC’s Cooperative Living magazine. A committee will evaluate all submissions, and the top three participants will receive prizes.

Include the following information with each entry: Artist’s name, age, school, grade they are going into, address, and phone number. Entries submitted with an email address will receive confirmation of receipt.
