Heather Slocum, 9, of Jim Thorpe was selected as the second grade winner for the PPL Bright Ideas Energy Efficiency poster contest. Slocum's entry was selected as a winner out of nearly 3,000 entries and was the only winning poster from Carbon County.
In the center of her poster, Slocum drew a globe with kids holding hands. "Save our planet together," she wrote on the poster. Surrounding the globe, she drew many pictures to show how to conserve energy.
"I wanted to draw a lot of pictures to give more information and examples," said Slocum.
