What's Your Why Art Contest

Our Deep South family is not defined by just those that physically come to work every day. It includes daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, wives, husbands, and grandchildren – all of which play an important part of why we come to work each day and stay safe.

To include these extensions of our “family,” Deep South is hosting an art contest for the children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews of Deep South employees who are ages 3 – 18. Submissions will be used for a 2021 safety campaign. We hope that this artwork provides children a means of self-reflection and expression to show what they love about you or what you do!




Must be a child, grandchild, niece, or nephew (ages 3-18) of an active Deep South employee. Artwork must be done without the substantial assistance of an adult on a 8.5” x 11” piece of white paper.


We encourage submissions that highlight a child's perception of what we do (or the employee does) at Deep South or what they enjoy doing with you (examples: time enjoyed outdoors together or a favorite hobby done together).


Young Child: 3-6 years old I Older Child: 7-12 years old I Youth: 13-18 years old



Participants may enter up to three (3) submissions. Participants must submit artwork between 8:00 am CST October 26, 2020 - 11:59 pm CST November 20, 2020, by mailing a copy to the main office at:

Deep South Crane & Rigging

OR by sending a high-resolution scanned copy to [email protected]. If sent electronically, we also request that you send the hard copy to the employee’s home office or to the main office address above.
Copies of the entry form are available at each home office or by download via link above.


All submissions must be the original work of the entrant and not violate any third party's proprietary or intellectual property rights. Artwork must be done without the substantial assistance of an adult. All artwork should have a unique title and a brief explanatory text about the artwork. All submissions must include the Entry Form, which includes the name and age of the child/youth and the employee’s name, job description, contact information, and home office.


Winners' names and art will be posted on Deep South’s social media accounts and internal communication platforms (including weekly safety meetings and workspace). Prizes do not imply endorsement by Deep South or any other party.


The winner for each division (per age group) will be selected after the close of the submission period. Winners will be notified within five (5) days following the selection of the winners. Deep South shall have no liability for any winner's failure to receive notices. If the winner(s) cannot be contacted, is ineligible, or fails to claim the prize within fourteen (14) days from the time award notification was sent, the prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner maybe selected.

Many Lifts, One Solution: Modular Lift System Flexes Hydraulic Muscles During Process Plant Overhaul

Deep South crews were challenged to haul, lift, and set 84 modules, including three towers (one measuring 100’ long, 350,000 lbs.) as well as various pieces of process equipment, such as piping, tanks, PDC buildings, and transformers—all within a tight schedule. Many of the modules had offset centers of gravity further complicating the lift and set.
