Wicklow students compete for Texaco children’s art competition awards


Young artists who submitted entries to this year’s Texaco Children’s Art Competition, including a number from Co. Wicklow, are currently having their works evaluated as the judging process gets underway.

Pictured is adjudicator, Hetty Lawlor admiring two of the entries received from Co. Wicklow this year – a work entitled ‘Hot And Cold’ by a pupil from Temple Carrig School, Greystones (left) and another entitled ‘My Baby Brother’ by a pupil from Greystones Community College.

Winners in the seven age categories, including one exclusively for artworks by young artists with special needs, will be announced in mid-April.

Currently in its 69th year, the Texaco Children’s Art Competition is the longest-running art sponsorship in Ireland. First held in 1955, it is hosted by Valero Energy (Ireland) Limited – the company that markets fuel in Ireland under the Texaco brand.
