Safety has never been more colorful thanks to the first annual P1 Group Safety Calendar, a new idea this year from our Safety Department.
In August, Safety Coordinator Cheri Totta put out the call for artwork from the youngest members of our P1 family.
Children ages K-8 belonging to, or related to, P1 associates, were asked to enter their 8.5 x 11 hand-drawn artwork reflecting the theme “what does worker safety mean to us?”
A total of 19 entries rolled in, but there were only 13 winning spots.
“The coolest thing was watching the drawings come in to the office,” Cheri said. “Receiving 19 entries for the first Safety Calendar was amazing. I can’t wait to do it again next year.”
A piece of artwork was selected for each month of the year as well as the cover. Kids whose artwork was chosen for the months each got a $50 gift card, Quench tumbler, coupon for ice cream at Quik Trip and a P1 flashlight.
The cover winner landed a $100 gift card plus all of the other prizes above. Everyone who participated got the tumbler, ice cream and flashlight.
The final winners were selected by the Safety Committee made up of Don Campbell, Greg Sweeney, Shawn Ross, Cheri Totta, Nate Christensen, Brent Neis, Dave Wright, Carey Minihan, Michael Thomas, Brad Herring, Shawn Norris, Kyndel Paulsen, Robb Eder, Toby Stephens, Michael Wessel and Rustin Coe.
The 2019 calendar was the first of its kind, and we hope the tradition continues!
