The Trinity Trust, in partnership with DallasChild Magazine, announces a Trinity River Art Contest for children ages kindergarten through 8th grade to use their imaginations to illustrate things found in and around the Trinity River. Select drawings will be chosen and displayed during the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Celebration on March 2-4, 2012.

Dr. Gail Thomas, president and CEO of The Trinity Trust, said, “We want children to embrace the Trinity River with their most creative drawings. Images can be anything found in and around the Trinity River including the river, frogs, trees, birds, kites, turtles, canoes, snakes, ducks, bicycles, fish, the sun, spiders, the moon, people, buildings, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and more.”

Prizes will be awarded to winning images in each category: Kindergarten-3rd grade, 4th-6th grade, and 7th-8th grade. The grand prize, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mentions will be determined by an esteemed panel of judges. One overall grand-prize winner will be awarded $100, along with the winner's school/art program receiving $1,000. For 1st place in each category, the winners will receive $75.00.
