Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is calling for entries in the 20th annual Adopt-A-Beach Children’s Art Contest. The deadline to submit artwork is March 2, 2016.
“Many young students across Texas have not yet had the opportunity to visit our beautiful coast,” said Commissioner Bush. “This competition encourages kids to learn about the Texas coast and then be creative in demonstrating what impacts them through their art.”
Ten winners will be chosen from each of four grade-level categories (K – 2nd, 3rd – 4th, 5th, and 6th). Commissioner Bush will select one grand prize winner from the 40 finalists.
This year’s grand prize winner will receive two round-trip, coach-class tickets from United Airlines, a 7-night Caribbean cruise from Royal Caribbean International and a class party at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels.
The grand prize winner’s teacher will also receive two round-trip, coach-class tickets and a 7-night Caribbean cruise.
All 40 winners will receive a ticket to the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi, a ticket to the Exhibit Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a ticket to the Houston Zoo, two all-day passes to Schlitterbahn New Braunfels, a certificate of recognition and a calendar displaying the winning artwork.
