Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative, Inc strongly supports the communities we serve.
With that said, one method of our support is sponsoring the annual Safety Poster Coloring Contest. This contest, which first began in 1984, is held to promote electrical safety and awareness among children. JMEC in conjunction with New Mexico Rural Electric Cooperatives Member Services Association and other cooperatives hold this contest for second, third and fourth grade students in cooperative service areas.
The process begins in November when the group selects a poster, and in January, over 18,000 posters are distributed. The schools select winning entries and return them to the cooperatives in April. These winners receive a prize at the cooperative level. Each cooperative then selects an overall winner for the statewide competition where first, second and third place are awarded.
