MCEC® invites you to join us in recognizing our resilient military-connected children this April during the Month of the Military Child (MOMC). Every year we take this time to celebrate these amazing children for their selflessness and sacrifice as they serve our country as part of a military family. 

Below are some resources to help you and your community recognize the Month of the Military Child:

  • Month of the Military Child Toolkit
    Listed below are items available for download and use in your local areas.
    Included are: Month of the Military Child Purple Up poster celebrating #PurpleUp day & military kids, Yard Sign design to print at your local printer, Certificates of Recognition for Military-connected Kids, templates for stickers, and the 2022 Purple MOMC T-shirt design (available for download to create your own)
  • Purple Up
    Wear purple to celebrate military kids! Purple references the joint environment of the military, encompassing all service branches, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Veterans. Purple combines each branch’s colors into one: the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard all use shades of blue, the Army uses green, and the Marines use red. MCEC® celebrates Purple Up this year on April 14th. 
  • Call for the Arts
    This year’s theme is Celebration. We encourage military-connected students in grades K-12 to provide their drawings, poetry, and or photography that celebrates their life as a military-connected student.
  • Hashtags
    Use #MilKidStrong on social media to recognize a military-connected child in your community and share their story; #MOMC and #MonthoftheMilitaryChild for discussion throughout the month and #PurpleUp for promotion and celebration of Purple Up Day in your area.
