Annual Poster, Essay and Video Contest Announced

By Beth Jimmerson

Electricity powers our lives. 

We rely on it 24 hours a day, seven days a week to support the life we enjoy. Conway Corp has been powering our community since 1929, and we’re proud to provide dependable and reliable services to our friends and neighbors.

Consider a chargeable gadget like your cellphone, the clock radio that jolts you awake or the TV that brings you the latest entertainment. The water heater that keeps your shower hot and the refrigerator that keeps your soft drinks cold. The automatic sprinkler system that keeps your lawn green and the toaster that turns your bread a crisp, golden brown. The washing machine that sends you off in clean clothes and the automatic garage door that welcomes you safely home — it’s all powered by Conway Corp.

What powers your day? Students, show us how Conway Corp powers your life by entering the annual Conway Corp Energy Smart Poster, Essay & Video Contest.


The poster contest is open to students in Pre-K through fourth grade in Conway. Using markers, crayons, colored pencils or paints, posters should illustrate the contest theme, “My Life, Powered by Conway Corp.”

Entries will be judged on creativity and theme representation. Prizes will be awarded to students, and the classroom of the overall winner will be awarded $100 in that student’s name.


The essay and video contest is open to students in fifth-12th grades in Conway. Students should submit a typed essay of 500-1,000 words or a digital video between 30 seconds and two minutes on the contest theme, “My Life, Powered by Conway Corp.”

Essays will be judged on content and syntax. Videos will be judged on creativity and production. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners in two age categories: fifth through seventh and eighth through 12th grades.

All winning submissions will be featured on Conway Corp’s website and social media. Winning essays will be published in the 501 Life August 2023 edition.

All students in Pre-K through 12th grade who live in the Conway Corp service area are eligible for entry. Students can ask school officials or visit for an entry form and contest rules.

Poster and essay entries should be submitted to participating teachers or postmarked to Conway Corp, P.O. Box 99, Conway AR 72033 by Friday, April 21. Essay entries can be shared via Google Docs or emailed to [email protected]. Video entries must be shared via Google Docs.
