A flock of Bermuda kites have been selected to decorate the new LF Wade International Airport terminal as part of a competition.

Aecon and Skyport, who hosted the competition, said the 155 entries and more than 200 designs were submitted as part of the competition to select ten winning designs.

Lily Mulder-Powell, Mikale Willis and Kiera Wales were named winners in the 12-and-under category, while two entries by Priel Minors were selected as the winners in the 13 to 18-year-old category.

Brian Lightbourne, Matthew Tumbridge, Abigail Kempe, Steven Harvey and Jordon Every were selected as winners in the adult category.

In addition to seeing their designs hanging in the new airport terminal when it opens next year, each of the winners was presented with a $250 cheque at a special reception.

Frank Ross, executive adviser for infrastructure at Aecon Construction, said: “We were so pleased with the creativity, use of colours and uniqueness in each kite.

“The installation is going to be visually stunning and we are excited to share it with the public once the terminal opens next year.”

Mikaela Pearman, marketing and communications officer at Skyport, added: “Our winners include children from both public and private schools and a diverse group of adults.

“We were overwhelmed by the large amount of entries we received in the contest and would like to thank the public for its engagement.”
