Calling out to all budding artists – Texaco is searching for the best young artists in the country.

Entries for this year's Texaco Children’s Art Competition are now being accepted until Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

The winners will be announced in mid-April and prizes will be given out in May.

Last year, 17-year-old Dundalk student, Nathan Morgan, who attends St. Brigid's Special Needs School received a 'Special Merit Award' for his entry.

And in 2016, Déaghlan McGovern (7), from St. Malachy’s Boys National School, Cara Pilbeam (13), from St. Vincent’s Secondary School, and Ella Taylor (6), from Scoil Mhuire na nGael were all winners in the high profile art competition.
