A committee of employees narrowed the selection to the top four entries in each grade category and then all employees were invited to vote anonymously for their favorite drawings. This is the second year United Power has held the Holiday Card Coloring Contest. The coloring contest asked children in grades kindergarten through sixth to illustrate “How Electricity Makes My Holidays Bright”. The drawings detailed holiday memories of baking cookies, gifts that require electricity to operate, holiday lights hung both inside and outside, and many more creative ideas.

United Power, Your Touchstone Energy® Partner, is a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative delivering electricity to more than 67,000 customers at homes, business, and farms in Colorado's north central front range. More information about the organization and energy saving tips can be found at
