Energizing Life in Our Communities

Snohomish County PUD has been ENERGIZING LIFE IN OUR COMMUNITIES for the past 70 years. We’re proud to have supplied the electric power (and water, for many) that has helped grow our area into the wonderful place that it is today. We’re equally proud of our efforts to contribute to the development and well-being of our great community. 

Theme

We invite you to use your creativity, compassion, and knowledge to create a bookmark that illustrates how “I can energize life in my community.”

SOME IDEAS TO GET YOU THINKING

  • How can you use energy to engage in an act of kindness? (bake someone a treat, write a thank you note, help with yardwork).
  • Check on your neighbors if the power goes out.
  • Donate to Project Pride or Helping Hands in order to help community members lower their electric bills.
  • Share energy-saving tips with your friends and family.
  • Help others put together an emergency preparedness kit.
  • What could you invent that would energize the world?

IMPORTANT REMINDER: spelling counts!

Eligibility

All students in grades K-12 who live in Snohomish County or on Camano Island are eligible to enter.
