Art Contest Rules


Texas students enrolled in grades K-5 are invited to participate in the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Take Care of Texas Kids Art Contest.  Contest entries are accepted from January 3, 2024, to March 1, 2024.  

To enter, students must submit an original piece of artwork portraying positive ways Texans can recycle. 

There will be a total of six winners! Texas Chemistry Council will provide prizes to the top two designs in each category: K-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade, and 4th-5th grade. There will be one Grand Prize Winner and one Runner Up named in each category. TCEQ Commissioners and representatives from Texas Chemistry Council will recognize the Grand Prize Winners at the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards Banquet in May.
