Childrens Art Contest

The 2019 Treasures of the Texas Coast Children's Art Contest have been chosen.  The grand prize winner was selected from the 40 overall winners and Grace Wimberley, a 5th grader from Saint Mary School in Orange won the prestigious prize package. Grace’s teacher, Cindy Claybar will also receive a prize package as well.

The winning artwork will appear together in a 2020 calendar, which will be distributed throughout the state. This year's grand prize winner will receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from United Airlines or United Express to any destination in the 48 contiguous United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, one 7-night Caribbean cruise from Royal Caribbean International departing out of Galveston, Miami, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Port Canaveral or Puerto Rico, 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. All 40 winners will receive a ticket to the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, two tickets to the Houston Zoo, a ticket to the Texas State Aquarium, two all day passes to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels, prizes and a certificate of recognition from the Texas General Land Office and a calendar displaying the winning artwork. The winning artwork will be on display in the South Central Gallery at the state capitol May 21st through 28th. Special thanks to Senator Larry Taylor for sponsoring the exhibit this year.
