Adopt-A-Beach art contest
Texas students in kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to enter the Adopt-A-Beach Treasure of the Texas Coast art contest. The annual competition encourages Texas schoolchildren to learn more about the Texas coast and express what they’ve learned through their art. Any medium may be used, but artwork may not be computer-generated.
Artwork should be based on the theme, “Treasures of the Texas Coast,” and show why the Texas coast is special to the student. Artwork also must incorporate the official Adopt-A-Beach slogan, “Trashing Texas Beaches Isn’t Cool.” Only one entry per student is allowed, and all entries must have a completed parental release form taped to the back. Parental release
forms may be printed from the land office website www.texasadoptabeach.org. Each contest entry must be postmarked by Tuesday, March 1, and submitted on an 8-inch-by-11-inch sheet of white paper.
This year’s grand-prize winner will receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from Continental Airlines to any Continental destination in the 48 contiguous United States, one seven-night Caribbean cruise from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines departing out of Galveston, Miami, or Fort Lauderdale, and a class party at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels. The grand-prize winner’s teacher will also receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from Continental Airlines and one seven-night Caribbean cruise courtesy of Royal Caribbean Cruises.
