Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) recently honored 14 elementary school students from the four towns in its service territory for their prize-winning entries in the Annual RMLD T-shirt Contest. RMLD General Manager Coleen O’Brien and RMLD Board of Light Commission Chairman John Stempeck and Vice Chair Phil Pacino recognized the students at a ceremony at RMLD in Reading.

A first, second and third place winner from each town and two honorable mentions from the Town of Reading were selected in the annual contest that encourages third and fourth graders to be careful around electricity and to become more energy conscious and aware of their own impact on the environment.

The contest coincides with RMLD’s annual Public Power Week/Energy Awareness Month activities. The students learned about electrical safety during their fall curriculum and how to save energy at school and home. Using this information, the Reading third graders and fourth graders from North Reading, Wilmington and Lynnfield were encouraged to turn their knowledge into creative works of art as part of the contest.

The 14 winners were selected based on their message and artwork that they created on the T-shirts.

The winning entries were displayed at RMLD’s Reading Office and on a calendar presented to the students and their families at the ceremony. Each participating student and their respective elementary schools in the RMLD service area have also received calendars. 

            The following students were honored at the awards ceremony:
