Middleboro Gas & Electric Department (MGED) wanted to get the word out about a new community shared-solar option and succeeded at doing so much more. In March, MGED asked students, grades 3-8, to design the new look for MGED’s official Solar Community program. Students submitted artwork that was then displayed in the administrative building where staff and customers could help narrow down entries to the top ten. The Grand Prize winner will have her art featured on MGED Solar program tote bags, informative brochures and will be framed for permanent displayed in the lobby of Middleboro Gas and Electric offices. Winners were also awarded gift cards from MGED for future art projects. Middleboro Gas & Electric Department successfully promoted a clean energy program and strengthen community ties with an art contest. It’s a win-win. Congratulations to Grand Prize, Helena, Grade 3, Henry B. Burkland School; Runner Up, Ryan, Grade 5, Mary K. Goode School; Honorable Mention, Lily, Grade 7, Tiger Nichols School.
