Auburn Grade Schools Participate in United Coloring Contest


During the month of April United Ambulance Service asked 3rd Grade students from Auburn area schools to participate in a Coloring Contest. The contest was developed in efforts to celebrate National EMS Week. (May 15th thru May 21st .)


Students were asked to draw a portrait based on “What they think of…” when they hear the following words:

EMS (Emergency Medical Services)

EMT (Emergency Medical Technician)


United Ambulance



It was United's hope that the contest would serve as an opportunity for the students to think about EMS and its application in their community. The portraits that were created were later displayed at Central Maine Medical Center and St. Mary's Regional Medical Center. These displays served as an artistic, EMS related presentation for patients, visitors, and hospital staff during EMS Week.


Participating schools included East Auburn Community School, Fairview School, Sherwood Heights School, Walton School, and Washburn School.


Awards were given for the “Top 5” portraits entered into the contest. In addition, 5 “Participation Awards” were given to a student from each of the participating schools. Students who received these awards will each be given gift cards to Staples and a United t-shirt with their created portrait on the back.
