Hands and markers

Flint Energies’ 2021 art contest is now open to students in 6th-8th grade in Flint's service territory.

Theme

Think about your favorite outdoor activity. Create a poster educating others on how to stay safe around electricity while participating in it.

A few important electrical safety tips for children:

  • Watch out for overhead power lines and electrical equipment. Never climb on or play near them.

  • Never climb trees near power lines. Even if the power lines aren’t touching the tree, they could touch when more weight is added to the branch.

  • Fly kites and model airplanes in large open areas like a park or a field. Stay far away from power lines. If a kite gets stuck in a tree that’s near power lines, don’t climb up to get it. Contact Flint Energies for assistance.

  • Never fly a kite on a cloudy day when a thunderstorm may be approaching.

  • Never climb a utility pole or tower. The electricity carried through this equipment is extremely high voltage and could kill you.

  • Never go into an electric substation for any reason. Electric substations contain high-voltage equipment, which can kill you. Never rescue a pet or retrieve a ball or toy that goes inside. Call Flint Energies instead.

  • Water and electricity are a dangerous combination and should never be used near each other.
