2014 Calendar of Energy Conservation

Americans are energy hogs and most individuals don't realize that their energy bill is one bill they CAN control. In 2012, the average household spent almost $1,900 on home energy bills. On average, about half of the energy used in homes is expended on space conditioning (i.e. heating and cooling). Despite technological improvements, many American lifestyle changes have put higher demands on heating and cooling resources. Computers, plasma-screen televisions, more appliances. they all add up to higher utility bills. Furthermore, the average size of homes built in the U.S. has increased significantly, from 1,500-square-feet in 1970 to 2,300-square-feet in 2010. But homeowners can save 10-50 percent each year by making smart energy choices.

Since 1995, Kissimmee Utility Authority has produced an annual calendar that promotes energy conservation. We target children with this program because research shows that conservation messages delivered early help establish a lifetime of good conservation practices.

KUA invites Osceola County students to use the power of art to promote energy conservation in our 20th 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 energy conservation message in their entry.

A panel of local judges will select twelve entries -- one for each calendar month -- that will be featured in our 2014 calendar. The 12 winners will each receive $100 cash. One grand 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 chance to win one of 20 annual passes to Gatorland, in honor of the 20th year of our contest.

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. 25, 2013.
