HELCO holds student poster and poetry contest

In celebration of Energy Awareness month in October, Hawaii Electric Light Company is holding a “My Clean Energy Hawaii” poster and poetry contests for Hawaii Island students in grades K-12.

The poster contest is for students in grades K-6, and the poetry contest is for grades 7-12. The contests offer students the opportunity to explore clean energy in Hawaii and to share their ideas with the community in a creative way. Posters and poems should show how the student plans to do their part to conserve and save energy to help keep Hawaii beautiful for future generations.

The entry deadline is Friday, Sept. 20. Entries from the finalists will be displayed at Hawaii Electric Light’s Clean Energy Fair on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Prince Kuhio Plaza. Winning entries will be announced during the fair. Winners will receive prizes ranging from mega electronics kits to clean energy-themed field trips. For more information, call 969-0137.
