Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives continued its long-running sponsorship of the Ohio 4-H Health and Safety Speaking Contest at this year’s Ohio State Fair.

Magen Howard, manager of communications and member services at Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives, handed out awards on behalf of OEC at the contest, held annually on the first day of the fair.

“Many of the topics the kids covered are the same ones we talk to our members about,” Howard said. “And chances are good that they’re served by an electric cooperative. It was a great opportunity to explain what cooperatives are and why we support 4-H, specifically the Health and Safety Speaking Contest.”
