Kaysen Pigeon rep Fetgatter

Katsen Pigeon, a first grade student at Ryal Elementary was selected as the winner of the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board’s Well Site Safety Day Coloring Contest.
His first place artwork was on display this week at the Oklahoma State Capitol. During his visit at the Capitol, the young artist was awarded a special citation from lawmakers (photo inset left) and met with State Rep. Scott Fetgatter.
He was the winner out of almost 1,500 entries from across the state. As part of the OERB’s annual Well Site Safety Day, 27 students in grades K-12 got the opportunity to share their original artwork, which educates their peers that well sites are not play sites, with their state legislators.
“Oklahoma is blessed to have thousands of working well sites, playing a major role in our state’s economy and energy security,” said Mindy Stitt, executive director of the OERB. “Well Site Safety Day and the art contest are a fun way to spread awareness that those well sites are for professionals only.”
In addition to meeting state legislators, the winners were recognized at an awards ceremony and enjoyed a day at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
The OERB offers free safety materials that educate kids that well sites are not play sites but are for professionals only. For more information on these programs visit OERBHomeRoom.com
The OERB is funded by the more than 2,500 producers and thousands of royalty owners across Oklahoma through a voluntary one-tenth of 1 percent assessment on oil and natural gas production. The mission is centered around a simple idea: empowering unlimited opportunity for all Oklahomans. We are committed to the wellbeing and prosperity of all.
