Children Art Competition with Texaco

I was reading the Gazette and discovered that Texaco also does an Art Competition for Children.

To enter, you must be under 19 years of age and you must be resident on the island of Ireland.

There’s a form to download and fill.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR THE COMPETITION IS Friday, 24th February 2012.

This is just an example of last year’s artwork. In each category, there were 20 Special merit Awards plus the 3 winners. That meant 23 hard choices to make for each category.

Some of the artwork was simply stunning, showing talent way beyond their years. I wish I could put them all up but I can’t. So instead I decided to put some artwork which caught my eye on an instant.
