The awards program for the 31st Annual SWTJC Creative Arts Contest is slated today (April 26) starting at 6 p.m. in the Matthews Student Center Ballroom on the SWTJC Uvalde campus.
"This is always one of the highlights of my year," SWTJC Public Information Officer Willie Edwards said. "It is great to recognize the young and not-so-young for their outstanding writing and artwork."
Trophies and medals will be handed out in a variety of age groups to first through fourth place winners in both literary and visual arts categories.
A $20 cash prize will also be awarded to overall literary and visual arts winners in each age group. Age groups include: Pre-K & K, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6, Grades 7-8, Grades 9-10, Grades 11-12, College, Community and Seasoned (age 60 and over).
"We will start with our youngest age groups," Edwards said. "The entire program should be over by 8 p.m."
All visual arts entries received in this year's contest are on display in the Matthews Student Center Ballroom.
