Has your military family visited a Blue Star Museum?

From Blue Star Families:

Let’s celebrate art as a thank you to the National Endowment for the Arts and the more than 800 museums participating in the Blue Star Museums program. They’ve given military families the gift of art, now let’s show them how much that means to us.

Enter our contest and send us artwork about your visit to a Blue Star Museum or artwork that is inspired by the Blue Star Museum program – winners receive a $500, $250 or $100 savings bond!

The contest is open to military children ages 3 to 17. What is a military child? Any child who has a parent or sibling (including step-parents and siblings) serving on active duty, in the reserves or in the National Guard.

Here’s How To Enter:

  1. Become a member of Blue Star Families at www.BlueStarFam.org.
  2. Email us your child’s artwork with short description/story of your experience tomuseums@bluestarfam.org.
    • Include your name, email and phone number, as well as your child’s name and age
    • PDF and JPG files accepted, the higher the resolution the better.
    • Have your child’s entry to us no later than 11:59pm EST on September 12, 2010.
