Today, the Armed Services YMCA was happy to welcome the family of 2018 ASYMCA Essay Contest winner, Malik Adams to our headquarters in Woodbridge, Virginia! Co-sponsored by GEICO Military, the annual ASYMCA Art & Essay Contest allows children to express their military lifestyle and serves to remind us of the sacrifices our men and women in uniform, and their families, make each day for our country. Each year, the Art & Essay Contest garners hundreds of submissions from the grade school children of active duty military personnel across the country. This year’s themes, “My Day at the ASYMCA” and “My Military Family”, allowed children to express the resiliency, strength and struggles associated with being a military family. Winners of the Art & Essay Contest received an iPod touch courtesy of GEICO Military.
