KUA Seeks Student Entries in Annual Calendar Art Contest
KISSIMMEE, Fla., September 24, 2014 – Kissimmee Utility Authority invites students to use the power of art to promote electrical safety in the utility’s 21st annual calendar art contest.
The annual talent hunt is open to Osceola County 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 the twelve best entries – one for each calendar month – which will be featured in the utility’s 2015 full-color wall calendar.
Each student who submits an entry will be honored with a letter of appreciation, a small gift and a copy of the calendar.
The twelve winning students will have their artwork featured in the 2015 calendar and receive a $100 cash prize. A grand prize winner, selected from the 12 winning students, will have his/her name and artwork featured on the calendar cover and affixed to a KUA bucket truck for one year.
To further encourage participation, the grand winner’s school will receive $500 in art supplies, and the school with the most total entries in the contest will receive $250 in art supplies.
The official entry form and contest details are available on the utility’s website at www.kua.com/calendar.
Completed entries must be received at KUA offices, located at 1701 W. Carroll St. in Kissimmee, by Friday, Oct. 24, 2014.
