Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC) recently received recognition in the 2017 Spotlight on Excellence national awards program, sponsored by the Council of Rural Electric Communicators and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).

SEC received a Gold Award in Best Digital Storytelling for its “Day in the Life of a Lineman” reality show video. The video follows SEC linemen in Altavista, Crewe, Dinwiddie and Powhatan as they work and troubleshoot throughout their day.

The video serves as a complement to the Day in the Life of a Lineman program, which provides local high school students with a multi-faceted look at a career in electric utility line work. Students gain insight into the working conditions, education/training requirements, career outlook and compensation of an electric lineman.

A special reception honored the award recipients during the Connect ‘17 Conference held in Tampa, Florida, on May 2. Winning entries were displayed in the Spotlight Café during the remainder of the conference.
