KTA Super Stores 33rd Annual 5th Grade Safety Poster Contest is going virtual with a “How Do You Shop Safely” Theme.

Inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic, KTA hopes the theme will encourage everyone to shop safely at their stores and beyond.

President of KTA Super Stores Toby Tanaguchi said they are excited to offer the annual 5th Grade Safety Poster Contest again this year.

“Being safe in our daily lives has taken on a new meaning in this past year, and we are looking forward to our Hawai‘i Island students’ interpretation of what that means now,” Tanaguchi stated. “Let’s work together to promote safety and get our communities closer to seeing the end of this pandemic so we can get back to school and back to events.”


The contest is open to all Hawai‘i Island fifth graders, students ages 10 and 11. Prizes will be given to first, second, third, and fourth place winners, as chosen by the public. All entrants will receive a special edition KTA face mask.

Prizes include:

  • 1st place: 8th Gen iPad with wifi ($329 value)
  • 2nd place: GoPro Hero 7 with touchscreen ($199 value)
  • 3rd place: Tozo T6 True Wireless Earbuds ($59.99 value)
  • 4th place: OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth Speaker ($34.99 value)

The contest will run from Feb. 15 through March 15, 2021. Judging will then be open to the public from March 16-31, 2021. Winners will be notified by April 5, 2021.


To enter, submit a graphic illustration that helps to visualize the “How Do You Shop Safely” theme. Completed posters must be scanned or photographed and uploaded to the contest website. Posters should be standard size, 8.5 x 11, and should be a common image file type (jpg, jpeg, png, tiff).
