You Art What You Eat! 2018-2019

TDA’s art contest engages students K-12 in learning about good nutrition by encouraging them to utilize their imagination and illustrate healthy school meals while also incorporating the inspired themes TDA provides. The winning entries inspire designs for cafeteria posters, social media ads, flyers and other resources that schools across Texas will use for celebrating National School Lunch Week and School Breakfast Week. The posters, toolkit materials and original artwork from the winners and runners up will be displayed in the State Capitol.  Specific dates will be announced via email to all Child Nutrition Directors during the next school year.
