A prizewinning artwork by 7-year old Monaghan student, Bobby Grimes, from Scoil Naoimh Éanna, Carrickmacross has been chosen to illustrate the 2023 Texaco Children's Art Competition Calendar just published.

One of 13 selected to illustrate the publication, Bobby's piece, entitled 'The Santa Caterpillar', will appear during the month of December and will be seen in thousands of homes throughout Ireland during the coming year.

Winning a Special Merit Award in the 2022 competition, it was one of a number said by a competition adjudicator to perfectly illustrate the incredible skill, creativity and imagination that many of our young artists possess and the important role schools have in encouraging their students through art education.
