Christmas Art Contest

Rehobeth Elementary’s Goodin wins annual Christmas contest

First Place – Payton Goodin

Wiregrass Electric Cooperative congratulates Payton Goodin, a fourth-grade student at Rehobeth Elementary School, for winning WEC’s 12th annual Christmas Card Art Contest.

Goodin’s drawing depicted Santa Claus climbing a power pole decorated with Christmas lights. The artwork also includes the words “Wishing You a Bright and Merry Christmas.”

Payton’s drawing was featured on the cover of December’s Alabama Living, and it appeared on WEC’s 2018 Christmas card.

“The judges loved Payton’s drawing, and they loved the creativity she used,” says Jennifer Ward, WEC’s manager of communications and public relations. “We were proud to feature this drawing on our Christmas card.”

Payton received a $50 gift card to Michaels craft store and a stack of the WEC Christmas cards to pass out to her family and friends.

Ana Tinker, a fifth-grade student at Webb Elementary, was selected as the second-place recipient. Cason Boothe, a fifth-grader at Houston Academy, was selected in third place. Both Ana and Cason received a $25 gift card to Michaels craft store.

“The Christmas Card Art Contest is one of the highlights of our year at Wiregrass Electric,” Ward says. “When the students’ artwork comes flooding in, we have a great time looking at each drawing and seeing all the wonderful creativity we have in the Wiregrass.”

Winners from each school were awarded a $10 gift certificate, and all students who entered received a gift from WEC.
