Louie the Lightning Bug awards Stockdale students
Louie the Lightning Bug awards Stockdale Elementary School students Julianna Sanchez and Jayden Richardson prizes for winning the coloring contest sponsored by Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative.
The Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative (GVEC) recently sponsored the Louie the Lightning Bug Electrical Safety Program and Coloring Contest in elementary schools across the GVEC service area. Louie visited more than 3,000 second-grade students in 35 elementary schools. The “Louie” program, which is designed to educate second-graders about electrical safety while they are having fun, has proven to be a successful teaching tool for the electric cooperative.
The contest winners from Stockdale Elementary School are Julianna Sanchez and Jayden Richardson. Louie the Lightning Bug personally delivered glow-in-the-dark T-shirts, wristwatches, and GVEC lunch boxes to the lucky winners of his annual electrical safety coloring contest.
“GVEC has been presenting the Louie the Lighting Bug Program since 1985,” said GVEC Community Relations Representative Dawn Southwell. “This program brings electrical safety into the classroom which is an important part of educating our youth and a big part of GVEC’s commitment to our communities. We sincerely appreciate the cooperation from the schools who have allowed us to bring in Louie and his safety message all these years and look forward to many more.”
