VFW Auxiliary Art Contest deadline is March 31

Red Bud VFW Auxiliary 6632 is reminding students 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.
