The North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN) teamed up with Clean Energy Insight for the 2011 NA-YGN Drawing Contest. In light of the events at Fukushima Nuclear Plant, the contest focused on nuclear power on an international scale with the theme, “Roddy Nuclear Powers the World.” Roddy is a nuclear fuel pellet, and an NA-YGN mascot, and he is predominantly featured in this year’s drawing contest posters.
NA-YGN would like to thank all chapters for their participation. Your support of this program ensures that the new “young generation” has clear information on nuclear power, and can make informed decisions about our energy future.
This year, voting took place on the CEI website in order to expand our voting audience and to draw attention to this site. Over 250 visitors to the site voted, and for that, we thank you!
We are proud to announce the contest winners:
First Place: Giovanni Valforte, Myrtle Avenue Elementary
First Runner-Up: Olivia Whitacre, St. Teresa of Avila
Second Runner-Up: Matthew McHugh, St. Teresa of Avila
Winners will receive an NA-YGN t-shirt, science kit, and books for themselves and their schools.
We encourage all NA-YGN Chapters to participate in the 2012 Drawing Contest, which will be 100% digital for the first time. If you have any feedback or questions about the Drawing Contest, or would like to assist in 2012, please contact Andrea Davis of the NA-YGN Triangle Chapter.
UPDATE: 5-17-12 – Pictures of award winners added.
Special “Thank you” to the Pittsburgh Westinghouse NA-YGN Chapter for their success in the 2011 NA-YGN Drawing Contest from all of your NA-YGN peers.
