Update: There's still time to get your posters in!. The deadline for entry has been extended to May 15, 2020.

What is This Year's Theme?

This year’s theme is “What to do if you see a downed powerline”.   

Let Lucky the Squirrel show you what to do by visiting wnhydro.com/downedlines

What Can We Win?

There will be three winners in each of the three categories, Grade 1-3, Grades 4-6 and Grades 7-8. The winners will receive a $50 gift card as well a special electrical safety kit for their families. 

What Do I Do If I See A Downed Powerline?

Downed powerlines are very dangerous. If you spot a downed powerline, keep at least 10 metres away, (the length of a school bus) even if it does not appear to be live. 

Call us at 519-886-5090 if you see a downed powerline and stay safe!
