WHAT’S THE THEME THIS YEAR?
This year’s GenTX Day is a call to action statewide to motivate students with a real-world college experience that inspires them to visualize a career goal and take the steps to achieve it. The 2014 GenTX Day campaign is called PicTour Contest!, which involves taking a college tour on GenTX Day, a few photo contests, and a college signing prize giveaway.
