Student Art & Essay Contest
The Annual Armed Services YMCA Art and Essay Contest is officially launched every November and is open to all eligible children of U.S. active duty or retired service members. Winners are chosen the following Spring.
Winners of both the art and essay contests have their winning entries displayed at 33 Armed Services YMCA Branches and Affiliate Locations, as well as military bases worldwide during Military Family Month in November.
