The Kids Poster Contest is sponsored by the Oregon Utility Notification Center. Students attending Mary Woodward, Alberta Rider and Deer Creek Elementary Schools and are in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade are eligible to enter the contest. It is designed to combine a student’s originality and artistic talent with his or her ability to share the important message of Know what’s below, Call 811 before you dig.
Fun Facts to know: There are over 2.6 million miles of underground pipelines in the United States – enough to circle the earth over 100 times.
Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs.
Data shows that if you call 811 before digging, you will avoid hitting an underground facility 99% of the time.
