United ISD congratulates De Llano Elementary’s 1st-grade student, Natalia Saenz, and Freedom Elementary’s 3rd-grade student, Noel Palomo for their recent victory in the Take Care of Texas Statewide Kids Art Contest. Students were required to submit artwork demonstrating how they would help keep the air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste. As regional winners, Natalia and Noel will receive a tablet computer donated by the Texas Chemical Council. Their artwork will also be showcased on the Take Care of Texas and The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) websites, newsletters, and social media. The TCEQ sponsors the annual art competition, and the Staff at each TCEQ regional office selects the winners from each of the regions’ qualifying entries.
