Tallaght, Lucan and Clondalkin Students Feature In Art Competition

Texaco Childrens Art Judging

Young artists who submitted entries to this year’s Texaco Children’s Art Competition, including a number locally are currently having their works evaluated as the judging process gets underway. Pictured is adjudicator, Noelle McAlinden admiring three of the entries received this year – a work entitled ‘Iggy’ by a pupil from Citywise Education, Tallaght (left), another entitled ‘Ray’ by a pupil from St. Kevin’s Community College, Clondalkin (centre) and a third entitled ‘Shadowed Light’ by a pupil from The Kings Hospital, Lucan.

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.
