Texas high school seniors vie for $10,000 educational scholarship
The Texas Capitol, Austin - State Representative Muñoz is teaming up with the Texas Hospitality Association (THA) to fight underage drinking and to promote alcohol responsibility through a statewide poster contest that will award one 2011 high school graduating senior a $10,000 educational scholarship.
THA will award the $10,000 scholarship to the Texas high school senior who designs and submits the best poster conveying the message or theme: “If you are under 21, it’s illegal to consume or purchase alcoholic beverages in Texas.” The winning poster will be distributed statewide to Texas establishments selling or serving alcohol.
“I am eager to take the initiative in involving Texas high school seniors in coordinating a message that will combat underage drinking amongst Texas minors and that will also remind all Texans of the need for alcohol awareness,” said Representative Muñoz.
The contest is open to all 2011 Texas high school seniors. Artwork must be an original design and may be computer or electronically generated, hand drawn or photographed.
Students have until May 6th to submit their poster to THA. The winner of the $10,000 scholarship will be determined by a vote of each Texas House of Representatives office.
