KISSIMMEE, Fla., August 22, 2007 – Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) invites students to use the power of art to promote energy conservation in the utility’s 14th 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 energy conservation message in their entry. A panel of local judges will select twelve of the entries – one for each calendar month – that will be featured in KUA’s 2008 Calendar of Energy Conservation.
Every student who submits an entry will be honored with a letter of appreciation, a small prize and a copy of the full-color calendar. The twelve winners will have their artwork featured in the 2008 calendar and receive a $100 cash prize. The calendars will be distributed free of charge, beginning in December.
Official entry forms and contest details are available on the utility’s Web site at www.kua.com/calendar.
The deadline for entries is 5:00 pm on Friday, Sept. 28, 2007.
Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
