Fourteen area children from seven schools were selected to receive awards for producing artwork that will be included in the 2019-20 PSEG Nuclear Emergency Plan Information Calendar for Delaware and New Jersey.
The honorees were chosen from among elementary school students who submitted artwork. All of the participating schools are in the Emergency Planning Zone, which is the area within a 10-mile radius of the Salem/Hope Creek Generating Stations in New Jersey. The calendar will be mailed to residents of the EPZ later in the year. The actual artwork will be posted to the Delaware Emergency Management Agency’s website in the near future.
