Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest
Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest is an annual scholarship contest that gives talented art students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to compete for up to $10,000 for college.
Sponsored solely by the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, this high school art competition requires the fusion of artistic talent with a passionate patriotic vision. Members of the Butler County High School Art Club, with help from art teacher Katrine Burdett, submitted 15 pieces of art to the Ladies Aux. to the VFW Post 5837.
The top prize went to Sylvia Hardesty with second and third being taken by Ty-Thomas Evans and Destiny Phelps. Sylvia's art will be submitted to the district competition, where she will compete against other students in our district and could go on to win the national award. It is time to get your art student started now for next years competition. Entries must be submitted to your local VFW Ladies Auxiliary Scholarship Chairman by March 31st. For more information, contact any member of the Ladies Aux.
