Bonnen Announces Scholarship Contest for High School Seniors


Insider's Report Vol. 10 No. 18

Last week, I teamed up with State Rep. Dan Flynn and the Texas Hospitality Association (THA) to fight underage drinking and to promote alcohol responsibility through a statewide poster contest. This contest will award four 2015 graduating high school seniors $10,000 in educational scholarships. 

THA will award 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." 2nd place will receive a $2,500 scholarship, $1,500 for 3rd place and $1,000 for 4th place. 

It is important to involve Texas high school seniors in developing a message that will help to combat underage drinking. Through programs like these we will be able to create increased alcohol awareness across the state. 

The contest is open to all 2015 high school seniors. Artwork must be an original design and may be computer or electronically generated, hand drawn or photographed. 

Students have until May 1 to submit their poster to THA.
