25th Annual Treasures of the Texas Coast Children’s Art Contest

Of the 40 overall winners, Yunlin Chu of Richmond, Texas was selected to win the Grand Prize. Yunlin is a 1st grader at Enya Studio and will receive the grand prize package. Yunlin's teacher, Hongliang Huang, will also receive a prize package. Yunlin's artwork depicted Texas sea turtles receiving a warm embrace during the historic winter freeze this year. 

The winning artwork will appear together in a 2022 calendar, which will be distributed throughout the state. This year's grand prize winner will receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from United Airlines to any United destination in the 48 contiguous United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, one 7-night Caribbean cruise from Royal Caribbean International departing out of Galveston, Miami, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Port Canaveral or Puerto Rico, and a Feed the Fish Tour at the Texas State Aquarium. The grand prize winner's teacher will also receive two round-trip coach-class tickets from United Airlines, and one 7-night Caribbean cruise courtesy of Royal Caribbean International.

All 40 winners will receive a ticket to the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, prizes and a certificate of recognition from the Texas General Land Office and copies of the 2022 calendar displaying the winning artwork. Prizes will be mailed out by June 15th.
