Kids grades K-8 invited to enter VFW art contest


VFW Auxiliary Post 1130, La Porte, is excited to announce the kickoff of its annual Illustrating America art contest. Local children in grades K-8 are invited to share how they view our world through their drawings and paintings while competing for national awards.

Students are required to submit an original two-dimensional piece of artwork. Coloring sheets, digital art and photography are not accepted. The entry must have been completed during the current 2021-2022 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 the district competition, with district winners advancing to the state competition. 

The contest consists of three grade divisions: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.

This annual contest rewards the artistic abilities of elementary and middle/junior high school students.

Student entries must be submitted to VFW Post 1130 Auxiliary by March 21, 2022. Interested youths, parents/guardians and teachers should contact the auxiliary, 181 W. McClung Rd., La Porte, at 219-324-9355 for more information.
