Electricity is everywhere in the modern world, and it exists wherever we work, live or play. While that equals electricity at our finger tips at all times, it also means people are injured and killed in electrocution accidents. Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of people are killed or injured from contact with electricity. These types of accidents are also one of the leading cause of death for children, according to statistics collected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
As an electric utility serving 74,000 customers, Kissimmee Utility Authority is concerned about public safety. Since 1995, we have sponsored an annual student art contest, alternating themes between electrical safety and energy conservation. We emphasize safety through this initiative because research shows that key safety messages delivered early in life help establish a lifetime of good safety practices.
We have opened the Call for Entries for our 25th annual calendar art contest. The contest is open to Osceola County students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Deadline for entries is Friday, Nov. 16, 2018.
