Christmas Art Contest

Attention Elementary Students (Grades 4th, 5th and 6th)!

Covington Electric Cooperative needs your help to make our company Christmas cards this year. We’re asking all interested fourth, fifth and sixth graders who live on our lines (or attend schools served by CEC) to submit a design.

The winning design will be reproduced as a greeting card and mailed to hundreds of individuals and businesses throughout our region and the nation. It will also be featured on the December cover of Alabama Living magazine.

Judges will select a winning design, a first-runner up and second-runner up. These students will win cash prizes of $75 (winner), $50 (first-runner up) and $25 (second-runner up). The winner and runner-ups will have their photos taken with their designs to be featured in Alabama Living.

Entry forms are available online now by clicking Christmas Art Contest Sheet 2019. Printed forms will be available in the offices at schools served by CEC and at all CEC offices beginning by mid September. Entry forms can also be emailed or mailed upon request by contacting Patty S.
