Help us choose our new PUD Mascot!< All Stories
The PUD is choosing a new mascot, and we need your help!
Our new mascot will be used at community events and in our electrical safety and conservation educational programming. Members of Team PUD have narrowed the choices down to three finalist concepts:
- Bigfoot: Though traditionally known for being an elusive mountain inhabitant, Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch) seems to be popping up everywhere nowadays. Bigfoot is a friend of the forest and possesses the strength and agility of a line worker— making this creature an interesting potential choice for mascot.
- Squirrel: It’s common knowledge that squirrels and electrical equipment don’t mix. However, it’s for this very reason that a squirrel could be the perfect ambassador for electrical safety. Adored by children, and commonly found across our service territory, the squirrel might just be the furry friend we need for our PUD mascot.
- Transformer: Though this transformer can’t transform into a different creature, it does transform your energy into a voltage that is usable in your home and business. When brought to life, the inanimate transformer could help educate children about our electrical grid and the importance of staying safe around powerlines.
We’ll use your input to help us choose a winner. We must receive your vote by Dec. 31, 2021.
