City announces holiday art contest

Friday, October 11, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Zilker Holiday Tree, Austin’s celebrated holiday symbol, is lit every year on the first of December. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department and Austin Energy are using the annual tree-lighting as the prize for their Zilker Holiday Tree Art Contest – the winners get to help light the tree. Kids between the ages of 5 and 10 are eligible to enter the contest to create an original artwork of the Zilker tree using crayons, watercolors, ink, colored paper, pastels or paint. Entries are due Nov. 1. Find the full contest rules and entry form here. (Spanish version here.)
