Event Details

“Honoring the Sacrifice” Art Contest for Students K-12
Lubbock VFW | PO Box 3126 | Lubbock, Texas 79452
Deadline: June 29, 2020, 5:00 p.m.

During times of war, less than 1% of Americans sacrifice by joining the Armed Forces to protect the country, its
people and its freedoms. This less than 1% carry with them the scars of that sacrifice. Today’s COVID-19 pandemic
has caused us all to sacrifice. Americans are sacrificing some of their freedom to prevent further spread. And a very
few are sacrificing their lives to treat the sick, to protect the most vulnerable and to find a cure.

In honor of that sacrifice, the Lubbock Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2466 and its Auxiliary have established a local
art contest that calls for the creativity of our youth. The theme of the contest is “Honoring the Sacrifice.” The student
should create art that captures the sacrifice in response to COVID-19.
