Kissimmee Utility Authority invites students to use the power of art to promote electrical safety in the utility's 17th 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 12 best entries - one for each calendar month - for inclusion in the utility's 2011 full-color wall calendar.

Each student who submits an entry will be honored with a letter of appreciation and a copy of the calendar. The 12 winning students will receive a $100 cash prize. A grand winner, selected from the winning students, will have his or her name and artwork affixed to a KUA bucket truck for one year and featured on the calendar cover.

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 http://www.kua.com/calendar.

The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29, 2010.

Founded in 1901, KUA (http://www.kua.com) is Florida's sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 62,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla.
