2016 Calendar of Energy Conservation

Our houses leak, our light bulbs produce more heat than illumination, our big screen TV sets draw power when they are turned off, and that's just the start of it. Combine that with the fact that the average size home built in the U.S. has increased significantly in recent decades-from 1,500-square-feet in 1970 to 2,600-square-feet in 2014-one can begin to see why energy costs are on the rise. Utility customers can save money and cut energy consumption by 10-50 percent, merely by taking sensible, practical steps to use energy more efficiently.

Since 1995, Kissimmee Utility Authority has offered an annual art contest, alternating themes between energy conservation and electrical safety. We emphasize conservation through this initiative because research conducted by the utility shows that key conservation messages delivered early in life 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 22nd 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 judges will select twelve entries -- one for each calendar month -- that will be featured in our 2016 printed wall calendar. The 12 winners will each receive $150 cash. One grand prize winner will be selected from the twelve winners and he/she will 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 $750 in art supplies and the school with the most total student entries will receive $500 in art supplies.

Entries must be received by Friday, November 20, 2015.
