Joi Speck, 10, from Fulton 4-5 Learning Center was a 2017 finalist.
Texas children, grades K-6, are invited to submit artwork for the 22nd annual Treasures of the Texas Coast Children’s Art Contest sponsored by the General Land Office as part of the Adopt-a-Beach program. Art should depict why the Texas coast is special or important to the artist. Rockport and other Coastal Bend students have been finalists and winners in past years.

According to the guidelines: Artwork must be original and must be a horizontal or vertical drawing or painting measuring approximately eight and a half (8 1/2") by eleven (11") inches. The size should not include a mat or border. Entries must not be framed, under glass, or have a protective covering that is attached to the art. Acceptable art media are paint (acrylic, water color or oil paints), colored pencil, colored markers, ink, crayon, and chalk or pastel (fixed). Collages, computer printouts, photography, or photocopies are not eligible. Nothing may be glued, stapled or attached to the front of the artwork in any way. For display purposes, colorful entries are preferred. No use of company logos, product brands, or store names. Any entries with use of such items will be disqualified. Only one entry per student."

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. Full details and prize information are available from the General Land Office.  All submissions must be postmarked by Thursday, March 1st, 2018.
