Corpus Christi area school children registered for the competition and spent over two months creating their own animations, games, stories, art and music for submission to the Texas Techies Animator 2010 competition. 43 projects successfully qualified in the semi-finals.  10 students made the final cut and were selected as the finalists.

We are pleased to announce that Joshua Holzworth from Richard King High School is the winner of our Texas Techies Animator 2010 competition.

For this year's competition, the challenge will be centered around a single theme, "Time Travel", and will allow the animators a great amount of creativity in their interpretation and execution of that theme.

Animator 2010 is a two step process:
   1. Competitors register and submit their entries.
