Medical Center of Trinity announces the award recipients for its 6th annual ‘Expressions of Thanks’ Youth Art Contest. Over 700 entries from students in Kindergarten through 12th grade were received from 31 schools, including homeschools.

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.
