2015 Calendar of Electrical Safety

Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of people are killed or injured from contact with electricity. In fact, one person is electrocuted in the home every 25 hours, according to the latest data available from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. These types of accidents are also the leading cause of death for children, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Since 1995, Kissimmee Utility Authority has developed an annual art contest, alternating themes between electrical safety and energy conservation. We emphasize safety through this initiative because research conducted by the utility shows that key safety messages delivered early in life help establish a lifetime of good safety practices.

KUA invites Osceola County students to use the power of art to promote electrical safety in our 21st annual calendar art contest. The annual talent hunt is open to students enrolled in kindergarten through grade 5, including public, private and homeschooled students. Students are asked to use crayons, markers, paints or computer-generated graphics to depict an electrical safety message in their entry.

A panel of local judges will select twelve entries -- one for each calendar month -- that will be featured in our 2015 printed wall calendar. The 12 winners will each receive $100 cash. One grand prize winner will be selected from the twelve winners and he/she with have their name and artwork added to a KUA vehicle for one year for the entire community to see. The grand winner will also be featured on the calendar's cover. Each student who submits artwork will receive a letter of appreciation and a small prize.

In addition, the grand winner's school will receive $500 in art supplies and the school with the most total student entries will receive $250 in art supplies.

Entries must be received by Friday, Oct. 24, 2014.
