The annual Texas Mental Health Creative Arts Contest is now taking submissions until March 15.  

The contest is hosted by the Texas Health and Human Service Commission along with the Texas System of Care and Texas Institute of Excellence in Mental Health at the University of Texas at Austin.  

Entries can be submitted in one of three categories: original artwork, writing or photography. This year’s theme is, “Why Does Mental Health Matter to You?” 

The contest is open to Texans of all ages. Judging is conducted in four age groups: elementary, middle school, high school and adult. Last year’s contest drew 687 submissions.  

Entries will be judged on originality, creativity and how it expresses this year’s theme. Winners of each age group will receive prizes and have their work displayed and published on the Texas Mental Health Creative Arts Contest website.
