2020 YLBS Winners

As part of the 2020 Month of the Military Child (MOMC) celebration, military

children and youth preschool through twelfth grade had the opportunity to

essay or art work to tell their story on what it means to be a military

child or youth.   Prizes are given for the winners of each of the age

categories and one overall winner.

grammar, presentation of the main idea and creativity.   All entries are to
