Submit Your Child’s Art for Wounded Marines

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is holding its second annual “Art for Wounded Warriors” program, which calls upon young artists of all grade levels to submit drawings, paintings, and any original artwork to decorate recovery facilities for wounded Marines around the nation.

“The Museum’s call for artwork is a wonderful way to teach children about service to the nation as well as for children to express their gratitude and support for our Marines,” said James Hunniford, the  Teacher-in-Residence at the museum. “We hope this program helps our nation’s children understand that there is something they can do to help.”

To participate, children should create a picture and write a supportive message on a 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper.  The child’s name, hometown, and grade level should be written on the back fo the paper.  Then, the drawing must be packaged in a flat, rigid envelope and postmarked and sent by December 10, 2011 to:

The National Museum of Marine Corps
Attn: Teacher-in-Residence
18900 Jefferson Davis Highway
Triangle, VA 22172-1938

Please note that artwork will not be returned to children.  Visit the National Museum of the Marine Corps website for more details.
