The Military Child Education Coalition® (MCEC®) created the Call for the Arts (CFA) in 2002. Since then, thousands of children from all over the world, representing every branch of service, have shared their interpretations of what it means to be a military-connected child through art. To kick off the Month of the Military Child, military-connected children, grades K-12, are invited to submit entries for the 2020 CFA! With the new digital submission process, we are excited to announce the inclusion of all forms of artistic expression. This includes all forms of visual art, creative writing and performance art.
We are especially aware of and sensitive to the enormous challenges confronting military kids and the disruptive impact COVID-19 is having on their lives. Our hope is the CFA can provide children a means of self-expression and reflection – a safe, creative outlet to process their emotions and make sense of their world.
