Coloring Contest: Proudly Public Power!

81 communities across Wisconsin own and operate their own electric utility, providing residents with affordable, safe, reliable, and sustainable energy without the use of tax dollars. We invite you to celebrate the qualities that make these hometown public power utilities special.

If you need a printed page, please stop at the Village Hall. Otherwise please print/save the page below. Read the guidelines carefully.

When you are done, you can send as the document instructs -OR- drop them off at the Village Hall. If you are dropping them off please do so by October 4th, to give us time to scan them in.
