“My Duty as a Citizen” was the theme of the Kids Voting Brownsville Spring 2013 Art and Multimedia Contests
that were open to students in all Brownsville schools.
Winners from among the more than 160 semi-finalist submissions were announced in early May after being judged by members of The University of Texas at community and members of the Brownsville community.
The contests gave Brownsville students the opportunity to display their knowledge of civic responsibilities in creative ways. Students expressed ideas of responsible citizenship by illustrating the importance of voting, the voting process, maintaining a safe and healthy environment, among many other ideas.
Contest winners were presented with prizes fully funded by local businesses.
