Treasures of the Texas Coast Children’s Art Contest opens
AUSTIN -- Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson is calling for entries in the 17th annual Adopt-A-Beach Treasures of the Texas Coast Children’s Art Contest. The deadline to submit artwork is Monday, March 4.
Winning artwork will appear together in the 2014 Adopt-A-Beach calendar, which will be distributed throughout the state. The annual competition encourages schoolchildren to learn more about the Texas coast and express what they’ve learned through their art. Open to students in grades K-6 across Texas, the contest motivates thousands of young artists each year.
This year’s grand prize winner will receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from United Airlines to any United destination anywhere in North America, one 7-night Caribbean cruise from Royal Caribbean International 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 United Airlines, and one 7-night Caribbean cruise courtesy of Royal Caribbean International.
Only one entry per student is allowed, and all entries must have a completed parental release form taped to the back.
