Fourth and fifth-grade students across South Carolina are invited to become book authors. The topic for 2019/2020 is new technologies in Energy.
The challenge is to help students learn about the history of electrification in the Palmetto state. Education, Training and Information is just one of the Seven Cooperative Principles and the opportunity to learn about the state’s energy history can only help expand their knowledge for future possibilities.
Students can compete on teams of up to four students and each team has to be registered by November 30, 2019. Students entered are responsible for writing and illustrating their book.
All books must be submitted to Horry Electric by Friday, January 31, 2020. Click here for more information on how to compete and for the challenge rules. The winning book will go on to compete in a statewide competition against other entries across South Carolina.
Horry Electric’s 2018/2019 winner was Marley Pelton (left), a fourth-grader at Daisy Elementary in Loris. Her book titled Einstein and His Electricity Adventure followed Einstein the guinea pig through the creation of electricity and the electric cooperative. Miguel Acosta (right), also a fourth-grader at Daisy Elementary, submitted his book into the contest. Pelton was a student of librarian Debra Rogers and both won $50 from Horry Electric for entering the contest.
