Tradition: primary school students are being asked to create posters promoting kite safety (File photograph)

Power supplier Belco is calling on schoolchildren to design posters promoting kite safety in the run-up to Easter.

Krista Barnes, the company’s director of communications and sustainability, said: “This is our 33rd year of the Belco kite safety campaign and poster competition and I encourage students to enter for the chance to win great prizes.

“Kite safety is very important during the annual Good Friday holiday and by participating in the competition students learn the important lessons on kite safety while having fun creating a piece of artwork.

“We look forward to receiving the creative and colourful posters every year which are displayed in our lobby and bring great joy to our staff and customers.”

The competition is open to children in years Primary 1 and 2. All submissions must be on an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper and either be photographed and e-mailed to communications@belco.bm or delivered to Belco’s office on Serpentine Road.

All submissions must include the child’s name, age, and school.

Deadline for submissions is March 25, 2022. The best overall poster winner will receive a $500 toy voucher and a $500 Belco voucher. The most beautiful poster and best kite safety message winners will each receive a $250 toy voucher.

Students who want to submit an entry can find information about kite safety on Belco’s website at www.belco.bm.

Kites are traditionally flown on Good Friday, which is on April 15 this year.
