Thank you to our Wonderful Sponsors

TID2015-1Dear sponsors, I would like to thank you for sponsoring the Texas Independence Day fair. The money that I earned is going towards college and for future investments in my schooling. I hope you sponsor this day as well as many other Texas day events in the future to support our young adults with futures in Texas as well as the world.

Thank you

TID2015-60Thank you again for putting on the Texas Independence Day Celebration and the Student History Competition. I really liked working on my art project and studying about the history of Texas. I was born in Fort Worth but my parents are from California and Canada. Texas is so different from both Canada and California, but I love living here. I appreciate winning prize money for my project and have put it away towards my college fund. I am looking forward to being a part of the history competition again this year. I hope my friends enter some of their projects too.
Thank you, Keri Kittleson

I wanted to thTID2015-62ank you for putting on the history program contest each year. I have entered different categories for 3 years in a row. I have done an exhibit and two art projects. They are a lot of work but I always learn more about Texas. I really appreciate winning prize money. I have spent some of the money on a soccer ball and have put money away for college. I am going to enter again this year as a high school student. I hope others enter too and like going to the contest and reading over and looking at the other work students have done.
Sincerely, William Kittleson
