VFW Auxiliary announces annual patriotic art scholarship contest

VFW Auxiliary 6632 is excited to announce the kick-off of the VFW Auxiliary’s annual Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest. Local students in grades 9-12 have the opportunity to compete for $31,500 in national scholarships.

Students must submit an original two- or three-dimensional piece of artwork. Digital art, photography and jewelry are not accepted. The entry must have been completed during the current 2020-2021 school year and the application must include a teacher or supervising adult’s signature.

Students begin by competing at the local VFW Auxiliary level. The first-place winner from each Auxiliary advances to District competition (if applicable) with District winners advancing to the state competition. State first-place winners compete for their share of $31,500 in national awards, and the national first-place winner is awarded a $15,000 scholarship.
