Press Release from Energy Share
Fourth Graders Say “Thanks”
A fourth grader from Superior Elementary School won second place in Energy Share of
Montana’s statewide art contest. On Wednesday, February 22 nd Sidney Kuhl received a $50.00 check from Energy Share. Hilary Bush, Energy Share representative from the Human Resource Council, presented Sidney with her prize. Her teacher, Mrs. Crabb, received a $50.00 Amazon gift card to use for classroom supplies. Additionally, Energy Share is buying pizza for Mrs. Crabb’s class as a “congratulations” for all their fine artwork.
Using the medium of art, Crabb taught her students about our Montana neighbors who
sometimes need a little additional help with keeping warm in the winter. Per Energy Share’s contest guidelines, the drawings by her students depict what Energy Share means to them.
First and third places this year went to Riley Allhands in Sheridan and Kannin Crawford in Kila.
Allhands’ drawing will be used on Energy Share’s thank you cards statewide beginning July 1.
The art contest is part of Energy Share’s overall efforts to educate the public on the energy
needs of our neighbors across the state. Donations from individuals and businesses including Missoula Electric Cooperative, NorthWestern Energy, and the propane industry, make it possible for Energy Share to help Montanans who face emergency, no-heat situations when they encounter temporary financial difficulties. The last two heating seasons working with District XI HRC in Missoula, Energy Share helped nearly 560 families in Mineral, Missoula and Ravalli Counties. Statewide, Energy Share helped 4,491 families during the same time period.
All the fourth graders who participated in the art contest send a big “thank you” message to those who donate to Energy Share to help keep their neighbors warm. If you or someone you know would like more information on how to apply or how to help, please call the HRC in Missoula at 406-728-3710, the statewide Energy Share office at 1-888-779-7589 or 406-442-4900, or visit the websites at www.humanresourcecouncil.org or www.energysharemt.com.
