For almost 20 years, the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) has diligently confronted the challenges of school transitions, mobility, and the separation military families face. Visual arts and writing allow military children to communicate pride in their parents, celebrate their military-connected lives and acknowledge their grief and worry through art. Since MCEC began the “Call for the Arts” in 2002, thousands of military children - from all over the world, from every service, of all ages - have mailed us their drawings, poems, and interpretations of what it means to be a military child.
The top 3 entries will win a trip to our 2018 National Training Seminar in Washington, D.C., July 23-25, 2018. The finalists will be featured in our 2018 Spring On the Move® Magazine, 2018 Month of the Military Child poster, or the MCEC 2019 calendar.
In celebration of our 20th Anniversary and sponsored by Target, the 2017/2018 Call for the Arts Campaign will raise the visibility of military and veteran-connected children and the sacrifices they experience through military lifestyle.
