Veterans Day poster contest

Children in grades 1-8 are invited to participate in the Highlands Ranch Veterans Day poster contest. Kids are encouraged to show their appreciation for our nation's veterans by designing an original piece of art.

This is an opportunity to have a discussion with family, friends and classmates at school about Veterans Day and the heroism and courage displayed by veterans from all branches of the military. Then use that discussion to guide your art, whether it is a painting, drawing, watercolor, or other type of medium. The only rule is the entry should not exceed 11" x 17" in size.

The winner in each category will be recognized during the Highlands Ranch Veterans Day event on Nov. 11, and will be presented with a prize.
