Nevaeh Barclay, a primary one student at Northlands Primary is the 2014 winner of the BELCO Bird Kite Safety Poster Competition.

Nevaeh’s artwork was chosen as the Best Kite Safety Message Overall of 131 entries sent in by other local primary one and primary two students. Students were judged according to their year level on the following categories: “Best Safety Message” and “Most Beautiful.”

The art competition is a part of BELCO’s 28-year-old annual Kite Safety Campaign to promote safe kite making and flying. In March, BELCO Kiteman Cornell Dunkley and Deana Bailey of External Relations and Corporate Communications visited more than 1,400 primary one and primary two students to give the BELCO Bird Kite Safety Presentation and Electrical Safety Demonstration.
