Two Fun Art and Writing Contests for Texas Students of All Ages

Encourage your little artists or aspiring authors to show off their talent



Does your child like to draw or to write? Here are two fun contests for kids in Texas.

Our oldest participated in the Don’t mess with Texas art contest last year and even though she didn’t win anything, she had a blast doing it. It’s a great way to teach kids about protecting the environment and to “Keep Texas Beautiful”. 

We haven’t participated in the KLRU Kids Writers Contest yet but our oldest is already working on her “book”. 


Don't mess with Texas Art Contest


Texas students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to submit their original artwork to participate in the Don't mess with Texas K-12 Art Contest.
