Deadline approaches for art contest
All young Texans between the ages of 5 and 12 have a chance to win free vacations, a class party at a water park, and have their artwork appear in a popular calendar.
Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson is calling for entries to the 18th annual Adopt-A-Beach “Treasures of the Texas Coast” Children’s Art Contest. The deadline to submit artwork is Monday, March 3.
Ten winners will be chosen in mid-April from each of four grade-level categories (K-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th, and 6th) for a total of 40 winners. One grand prize winner will be chosen from among the 40 finalists.
This year’s grand prize winner will receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from United Airlines to any United destination in the 48 contiguous United States, 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.
The winning artwork will appear together in a 2015 calendar that will be distributed next year.
Open to students in grades K-6 across Texas, the contest motivates thousands of young artists each year.
