2012 marks the 100 year anniversary for Traverse City Light & Power.
Traverse City Light & Power has been providing safe, reliable and affordable electricity to our residents, businesses and industries for a remarkable 100 years - powering this community with energy and commitment.

As part of the celebration of 100 years of service, TCL&P announces the “Power of Art” contest – inviting community members to share their talents and their energy. The goal is to engage the Traverse City area in a way that will enhance their interest and understanding of the role that efficient, safe, reliable and affordable electricity plays in the prosperity of this community.

The contest has two categories: video and two dimensional (2-D).

Video Contest
Community members are invited to produce up to a 5 minute video that shows the importance of energy efficiency in our community.

The video contest is a Juried Video Competition with two judging categories; student and community. A $500 Downtown Traverse City gift certificate will be awarded to the top winner in each category. The award winning videographers will also receive an engraved medal, accolades at the awards ceremony and a prominent place in TCL&P communications.

2-D Contest
TCL&P is challenging area students to brainstorm and create a 2-D work of art that displays the importance of energy efficiency in our community.

The 2-D contest is a Juried Art Competition open to art class student’s grades 6-12. One $500 sponsorship will be awarded to each grade level. The award winning student will earn a $400 class sponsorship to support supplies and curriculum. The student will personally receive an engraved medal, accolades at the awards ceremony and a prominent place in TCL&P communications. The teachers of the award winning students will be honored and thanked for their contribution with a $100 Downtown Traverse City gift certificate.
