Please keep in mind:
1. Important: We send care packages to ALL branches of the military. Please avoid using phrases like, “Thank you, Soldiers,” which would refer specifically to members of the Army (and thereby leave out the Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard). Instead, consider using the words “Heroes,” “Warriors,” “Patriots” or “Brave Americans.”
2. Artwork must be original, entirely the work of the entrant and not in violation of any copyrights. Computer-generated art will not be accepted.
3. Help us spread the word about this contest! Invite scout troop, service club, schools and youth group leaders to have their youth participate!
4. Questions? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Best of luck to all who enter!
