"Take Care of Texas" K-5 Art Contest

The Take Care of Texas Kids Art Contest is a fun way for K-5 students to learn about protecting the environment and come up with creative ways to share this knowledge with others! This year, 4th and 5th grade students will be participating in this contest. Students will illustrate how they can help “Take Care of Texas” by keeping air and water clean, conserving water and energy, and reducing waste. I have discussed contest & design rules with students in class. All entries will be submitted by me, Ms. Hernandez, on March 1, 2019. Sixteen Texas regional winners will be selected. The Grand Prize winner will receive a Samsung Laptop, and the remaining fifteen winners will receive a Samsung tablet. Prizes are made possible through a donation from Samsung Austin Semiconductor.

*I will be notified with results on April 15th, 2019.*
