The annual Veteran Appreciation Celebration will be 1-3 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Devall Student Center Ballroom.

An art contest for KC students and public school students has been added to the celebration to help bring awareness of the history and purpose of Veterans Day by allowing students to portray their own personal appreciation to veterans for their service through artistic pieces.

All art must be submitted no later than Oct. 31. The five categories are kindergarten through second grade; third through fifth grade; sixth through eighth grade; ninth through 12th grade; and KC students.

Names of winners will be given to their school officials and will be announced at the celebration where monetary prizes will be awarded.

Acceptable art forms include posters, pre-printed coloring pages (for younger children), food art, craft projects, paintings, sketches, video, sculpture or ceramic/glass/metal art.

All art projects must be accompanied by an entry/release form and must be submitted to Jackie Kelley or Jayson Knapps in the Financial Aid Office in the Devall Student Center.

Prizes are as follows: $50 for kindergarten through second grade, $50 for third through fifth grade, $50 for sixth through eighth grade, $75 for ninth through 12th grade and $150 for KC students.
