Texas High School Seniors Vie for $10,000 in Educational Scholarships

AUSTIN, TEXAS ―State Rep. Kacal 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 four 2013 graduating high school seniors $10,000 in educational scholarships.

"I am extremely excited about working with THA to encourage and involve Texas high school seniors in developing and supporting a message that will work to combat underage drinking. We must always remember the importance of alcohol awareness," said Rep. Kacal.

THA is awarding a $5,000 scholarship to the Texas high school senior who 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." A $2,500 scholarship will go to 2nd place, $1,500 for 3rd and $1,000 for 4th. The winning posters will be used in a statewide alcohol awareness campaign.

The contest is open to all 2013 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 3rd, 2013 to submit their proposal to THA. For additional details on the scholarship contest, please go to: www.TexasHospitalityAssociation.com.
