Expressions of Thanks Youth Art Contest in Honor of Veterans

Entries for Medical Center of Trinity’s 7th annual ‘Expressions of Thanks’ Youth Art Contest were accepted August 13, 2018 – September 14, 2018. We received over 500 entries from students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

The entries, which included art, as well as compositions and poems, were touching and personal, honoring veterans of all branches of service. Veterans and others working with veteran’s affairs served as judges for our contest. They were very impressed by the diversity and creativity of the entries and remarked how every entry was individual and special.

Every child who entered will receive a participant certificate at our Art Reception, as will those receiving individual awards.
