All contest entries are on display on the first floor of the Blagg-Huey Library.  See the five winning entries in the living room area (toward the back of the building); other entries are displayed near the Information Desk and printers.

The Pioneer Woman statue at TWU is a symbol of the indomitable spirit and heroism of the pioneer women who settled Texas.  American Heart Month and Go Red for Women are annual national campaigns aimed at promoting awareness of and eradicating heart disease, the number one killer of American women.  

Congratulations to the winners of The Pioneer Women Goes Red--and thank you to every entrant.  Because of each of you, this contest was a fun, creative, competitive, inspiring Pioneer success. 

Go Red!
