Student art contest

2023 Art Contest logo - Super Who?

 

Here at Snohomish PUD, we know students in our area have powerful ideas about energy.  Let’s have some fun sharing some SUPER ideas by creating an energy superhero!

2023 theme

We invite you to create a superhero with energy-related superpowers.

Some ideas to get you started

Here are a few ideas to help get you thinking, but make sure to use your own creativity to power up your original idea.

Your Superhero/ine could…

  • possess the power to generate clean electricity by controlling renewable resources.
  • fly around Snohomish County and teach citizens how to conserve electricity and water.
  • save the day by putting up an invisible barrier so people don’t get hurt by downed powerlines.
  • use super speed to deliver emergency supplies to citizens who haven’t prepared for storms in the event of a power outage.
  • use telepathy to prevent people from making dangerous choices around electricity.

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