Chazz’s artwork was chosen as the Best Kite Safety Message Overall of 150 entries sent in by other local primary one and primary two students. Entries were judged according to their year level on the following categories: “Best Safety Message” and “Most Beautiful”.

The art competition is just one part of BELCO’s 27-year-old annual Kite Safety Campaign to promote safe kite making and flying. In February and 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.

BELCO’s Kite Safety Campaign ends on Good Friday, when BELCO Bird will visit safe kite flying locations around the island. Visit to find out where BELCO Bird will be on Good Friday.
