Help Your Elementary School Promote Electric Safety, Prizes Up to $10,000

Wires Down Flier

The BGE Wires Down Video Challenge has begun—and your school’s adaptation of the original “Wires Down” commercial could win up to $10,000! The video challenge was designed to help promote electric safety education and teach children about the potential hazards surrounding downed power lines. In addition, it also provides an opportunity for all public and private elementary schools across the BGE service territory to earn funding toward a school enrichment project. Please review the attached flyer for additional contest information, and visit to download an entry kit and educational materials. Entries must be received by April 2, 2018.
