The VFW Auxiliary is happy to offer The Young American Creative Patriotic Art Awards. This is an art contest for students in grades 9, 10, 11,or 12. Students must attend school in the same state as the sponsoring VFW Auxiliary. Homeschooled students are eligible, foreign exchange students are not. Students can be no older than 18 years of age at time of local entry, and they must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. national. Deadline is March 31, 2017 to the local VFW Auxiliary.
The first place winner from each VFW Auxiliary will be sent to the Department Scholarship Chairman for judging. There are a few rules so you must complete an application to accompany your art. Many forms of medium can be used. To receive an application and contest rules, please call me at 740-929-2617 and leave your name and address. I will send out an application the next day.
God Bless our Men and Women in uniform and God Bless America.
Lauralyn V. Palmer, Secretary VFW
