Conway Corp Poster, Essay & Video Contest

Electricity powers our lives. We rely on it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support the life we enjoy from personal appliances to business machinery. Conway Corp has been powering our community since 1929, and we’re proud to provide a dependable and reliable service to our friends and neighbors.

As essential as it is to our everyday lives, electricity is often taken for granted. Plug in a cord, flip a switch, turn a knob – it’s always there. We all rely on a growing number of appliances every day but rarely recognize and appreciate the value of electricity.

Consider a chargeable gadget like your cell phone, the clock radio that jolts you awake or the TV that brings you the latest news. The water heater that keeps your shower hot and the refrigerator that keeps your soft drinks cold. The automatic sprinkler system that keeps your lawn green and the toaster that turns your bread a crisp, golden brown. The washing machine that sends you off in clean clothes and the automatic garage door that welcomes you safely home – it’s all powered by Conway Corp.

How do you use electricity every day? Students – show us how Conway Corp powers your life by entering the fifth annual Conway Corp Poster, Essay and Video Contest.

The poster contest is open to students PreK-4th grade in Conway. The essay and video contest is open to students 5th-12th in Conway. Students should use their imagination to illustrate the 2017 contest theme, "My Life, Powered by Conway Corp.”
