Horry Electric launches first Christmas card contest!

Christmastime is quickly approaching, which means Horry Electric is searching for a great Christmas card to send out this year! The Cooperative is looking to make the company Christmas card personal and unique. What better way to do that than by incorporating the children in our communities?

We’re looking for students in kindergarten through fifth grade to create our card. We encourage students to be as creative and colorful as possible, while incorporating our electric cooperative into their Christmas card theme. This could include: Willie Wiredhand (co-op mascot), bucket/line trucks, linemen, employees, power lines, light bulbs, rural area scenery, etc.

Horry Electric will be presenting a $100 cash award to the student whose card is chosen for our Cooperative to send out this Christmas.

Contest requirements:

  • Please include the “Horry Electric Cooperative” logo or “HEC” on the cards.
  • Cut-outs or computer designs cannot be used on the card.
  • The card format is an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper folded in half (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″). Other sizes will not be accepted.
  • Children in K5-5th grade may enter.
  • Children will design the front and inside right of the card only.
  • ALL entries must include the following information on the back of the card: student’s first and last name, school name and grade level.

Drop-off submissions will be accepted at Horry Electric’s Conway and Socastee offices:
