Youth Arts Contest accepting entries

TEXAS, August 3, 2013—The "Get to Know" Texas State Parks Youth Arts Contest invites youth (ages 19 years and younger) to go to a Texas State Park and create original works of art, writing, photography, videography and music—all inspired by nature.

Prizes include digital and underwater cameras, camcorders, art supplies, binoculars, fishing rods, writing supplies and more. Each category has its own rules and additional prizes.

The contest will run until November 1, 2013.

Entry information can be obtained by visiting http://www.get-to-know.org/contest/us/enter/.

All creative works of art will be displayed in the Texas State Parks Gallery.

Texas State Parks is proud to partner with the "Get to Know" program, whose mission is to inspire connections between children and nature through the creative arts.

The goal is to be as creative as possible. Youth are encouraged to get outdoors and get to know. Submit the work for a chance to win cool prizes.
