70th Texaco Children's Art Competition Winners Announced 

The closing date for entries to this year's Competition has now passed and we would like to acknowledge and thank all ​of the young artists who entered and their parents or guardians, their teachers and their school communities for their involvement and participation.

With many thousands of artworks received, this year's entry level was notable particularly in relation to the quality of work received.

Congratulations to all, but especially to our category winners whose winning artworks are displayed in the 2024 Gallery above.  Each of these artists was invited to our Awards Ceremony in May where they were officially presented with their award prizes and certificates. 

We note in particular this year's overall winner - Charley Bell from Methodist College, Belfast - ​for her coloured pencil artwork entitled 'Anticipation'. ​Charley was the overall winner of last year's Competition too so it is a particularly poignant tribute to her and her artistic talents that she entered again this year and won. She deserves our most heartfelt congratulations.

Her winning artwork along with three other artworks from this year's Competition will be exhibited at the prestigious 25th International Arts Festival in Tokyo's National Arts Center in August at the kind invitation of the International Foundation for Arts and Culture (IFAC).  Well done Charley and congratulations to Weronika Jarosinska (Donegal), Eimear Fitzgerald (Clare) and Darragh Granahan (Galway) on this selection too. 

Congratulations also to those artists who have been awarded a Certificate of Commendation by our judging panel.  Their names may be viewed here, listed alphabetically by surname. Well done, your certificate has been sent directly to you or to your school.

If you have any questions regarding the Competition, please email Bronagh Carron at texacochildrensart@valero.com
