Get a head start on next month's theme: Water
The deadline to enter The Monthly DoDEA Artist Spotlight Challenge can be found below in the Upcoming Spotlight Themes section. Once the March Favorite is announced we will begin accepting entries for April's theme: Water
April is the Month of the Military Child, a time when we celebrate the important role children play in the Armed Forces community through their commitment, courage and unconditional support of their parents. Graciela Tiscareno-Sato's book, "Good Night Captain Mama," gives military children an insight to the service of their military parent and provides a vehicle for children to make connections in their lives by designing and decorating their own patches, just like those on Captain Mama's uniform. Therefore, in recognition of the contributions and sacrifices of military children, we are inviting students to submit their own design of a Patch of Honor.
Submission and voting deadlines will be the same for "Patch of Honor" and the April Artist Spotlight theme. All "Patch of Honor" entries will be uploaded to a Facebook album separate from the April Artist Spotlight theme entries and voting procedures will be the same. The winning "Patch of Honor" submission will be announced on the DoDEA website and DoDEA Facebook fan page on April 30th to wrap up the Month of the Military Child Celebration.
ALL ENTRIES WILL BE SUBMITTED IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ENTRIES ( email@example.com ) AND MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE PERMISSION/ENTRY FORM BELOW.
