This year 89 teachers out of 44 secondary and 25 preschool educational institutions participated in the creative contest. 25 teachers became winners and prize winners in six categories.

Please, be reminded that the contest “The best lesson on electrical safety” has been already held for three years, starting from 2010. For this period about two hundred teachers have already become its participants, who have gained a wide experience in teaching lessons on electrical safety.

Today it is the only textbook on “Children’s electrical safety”, which should assist teachers in planning and conducting such lessons.
In determining the prize winners the use of non-traditional forms conducting lessons by the teachers, the application of quality educational material, multimedia, teaching aids, teaching and handout materials was taken into account.

All the teachers, who prepared and conducted the lessons on electrical safety within the contest, received a special certificate of participation.
However, specialists of Belgorodenergo believe that preventive work with children and adolescents should not be limited to the contest. The power engineers set the task to unite the efforts of regional agencies and the public in the struggle for the life and health of children. To prevent a deadly threat posed by the lack of knowledge of the rules of electrical safety, and to eliminate possible tragic consequences, children need to be regularly talked about the risks they face. And one cannot do without teachers, educators and parents. The result of the work this year was holding over 700 lessons on electrical safety in the schools of the region and guarding against electrical injuries at power facilities of the company.
