Fourteen area children from seven schools were selected to receive awards for artwork to be included in the 2018-19 PSEG Nuclear Emergency Plan Information Calendar for Delaware and New Jersey.
The honorees were chosen from among elementary school students who submitted artwork. Participating schools are in the Emergency Planning Zone, which is the area within a 10-mile radius of the Salem/Hope Creek Generating Stations in New Jersey. The calendar will be mailed to residents of the EPZ later in the year. Artwork will be posted at dema.delaware.gov in the near future.
Winning students were Ethan Egloff and Sophia Nguyen, Brick Mill Elementary School; Damien Frezza and Yutika Kedia, Cedar Lane Elementary School; Aziza Prince and Yasmine Wright, Kathleen H. Wilbur Elementary School; Ruby Jordan and Gabrielle Baran, Old State Elementary School; Makenzie Tyson and Samantha Klein, Silver Lake Elementary School; Paige Romone and Riley Truver, Southern Elementary School; and Lincoln Latagne and Ethan Fink, Townsend Elementary School.
DEMA Director A.J. Schall and David Burgin, Corporate Manager-Emergency Preparedness at PSEG, presented the winning students with gifts and certificates during a ceremony April 26 at the Delaware National Guard Smyrna Readiness Center.
