We are teeming with talent in Kerry, especially in our elementary schools, so it’s no surprise this week to see some of the high quality work students have produced as part of the annual Safety Calendar Art Competition. Kerry County Council Road.
As every year, hundreds of registrations are pouring in from schools across the county as students use their artistic talents to promote the critically important message of road safety.
With so many entries, there was the incredibly difficult task of narrowing them down to just 12, but the winners have been chosen, and their artwork will now be on the council’s 2022 road safety calendar.
In previous years, winning students were invited to attend County Buildings in Tralee, with prizes presented by the Cathaoirleach. However, with the COVID restrictions still in place, such festivities were not possible this time around.
Instead, Council staff arranged for the delivery of prize boxes (consisting of a KCC-sponsored winner’s trophy, RSA-sponsored high-visibility products, published calendars, and chocolates) this week to the winning students. in their respective county schools.
The schedule is now available for download from the Kerry County Council website at http://www.kerrycoco.ie.
