2021 Texas Mental Health Creative Arts Contest Virtual Ceremony
The 2021 Texas Mental Health Creative Arts Contest will be hosting a virtual ceremony to commemorate and honor the winners of this year’s contest. This annual contest provides school-age youth as well as adults the opportunity to express themselves through visual and verbal means, shining a light on an often-overlooked topic and shows why mental health matters.
To determine winners, submissions were presented to a panel of judges who have the same passion for mental health awareness (and eye for artistic/literary expression) as we do. Works were evaluated based on technical skill, creativity, relevance to this year’s contest theme, and the emotional power behind the piece.
