Young artists who submitted entries to this year’s Texaco Children’s Art Competition are currently having their works evaluated as the judging process gets underway. 

Pictured is adjudicator, Marie Connole admiring two of the entries received from Drogheda this year – a work entitled ‘With us in Spirit’ by a pupil from Sacred Heart Secondary School (left) and another entitled ‘Motherly Love’ by a pupil from The Arthouse. 

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

Now celebrating its 70th 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.
