Time to enter VFW art contest


We all know that “good art” takes time. It’s that time of year again for high school students to start working on their entry in the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW’s Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest.

All art must be on paper or canvas. Water color, pencil, pastel, charcoal, tempera, crayon, acrylic, pen-and-ink, or oil may be used. Digital art is not accepted. It can be no smaller than 8”x 10” and no larger than 18”x 24 ”. It must be packaged to be mailed without damaging the art.

There are a few more rules, suggestions, tips, and an entry form to be filled out. The entry deadline is March 31, 2014.

All entries must be delivered to VFW Post 1388, 3430 North Bank Road, Millersport, OH 43046 by 5:00 p.m. on March 31, 2014. For an application and a set of rules, please contact Lauralyn V. Palmer, Pres. Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW, at 740-929-2617 after 5:00 p.m .and on weekends.

We had only one entry last year and he won $25 just for entering. You could also be awarded prize money on four different levels.

God Bless Our Veterans and God Bless America.
