Texaco Children’s Art Competition opens for Roscommon artists

The search to find the young artists who will excel in this year’s Texaco Children’s Art Competition has begun.

  Now in its 68th year, it is widely acknowledged as the longest running arts sponsorship in Ireland. The closing date for entries is Monday, February 28th. Judging will take place in April with winners to be announced in May.

  Last year, Roscommon student, Róisín Sturgeon (7), from Glanduff National School, brought distinction to the county winning a Special Merit Award in the Competition for her artwork entitled ‘Stargazing’.

  Details are available at www.texacochildrensart.com or at Texaco service stations throughout the county.
