participate including 16 central Texas counties. Each zone competes within
their own boundaries.

The contest entries MUST BE POSTMARKED no later then FEBRUARY 8, 2006.
The winners will be announced on March 2, 2006 at the Celebrations in
the State Capitol in Austin.
It is our desire that students learn about and love their great state of Texas. This contest may be used as a teaching tool, a springboard for discussion, or a home activity for extra credit.
This year we have made your participation easy by allowing you to sign permission for the student’s entry. This is a “blind” entry, so please insure that the students do not write their name on any of their work, including cutting and pasting in the registration field below. Please attach the entry forms securely to the students’ work.
are looking forward to announcing the winners and best of luck to you!
