Have you ever taken a few moments to examine the artwork featured on our web site’s home page?   Every picture that scrolls through was created by a military-connected child!  I encourage you to spend a minute or two really absorbing all of the experiences that they represent.  Pay a visit to our parent organization, the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC)®, and you'll see many more artwork examples featured.  There are some very talented artists out there and who better to communicate the particular challenges faced by military families then those students who live through them every day of every year?  For this reason, MCEC® has established their “Call for the Arts: The Art of Being a Military Child” contest.

Who is it Open To?

All military-connected children in grades Kindergarten through High School.

What Art Mediums Will Be Considered?

Artwork, Film and Writing

What is the Deadline?

Entries must be post-marked by February 24, 2012.
