The contest is a fun way for students to learn about protecting the environment and come up with creative ways to share this knowledge with others. The contest is open to students throughout Texas, whether they attend a public school, private school, or are homeschooled.

To enter, students submit their artwork showing positive ways to help keep the air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste. Students’ artwork must include the slogan “Take Care of Texas. It’s the only one we’ve got.

Participants submit their artwork to the TCEQ, and each of the TCEQ’s 16 regional offices will select a winner. One grand prize winner will receive a laptop, and 15 students will win a Samsung tablet. The teacher of the student who designs the overall best artwork will also receive a tablet. Prizes are provided by the contest partner, Samsung Austin Semiconductor.

Entries must be postmarked on or before March 2, 2018. For more information, visit Take Care of Texas or e-mail educate@tceq.texas.gov.

Take Care of Texas is a statewide campaign from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that encourages all Texans to help keep our air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste.
