Calling All Young Waconia Artist! Art Contest Going on Now For Veterans Weekend!

Calling All Young Waconia Artist! Art Contest Going on Now For Veterans Weekend!

The Lions are at it again and excitement is already building for the Waconia Veterans Weekend, which will be held July 12-14, 2013.  The Waconia Lions Club is organizing the effort, which will feature the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team, a parade honoring local veterans, a community picnic and dance.

The Lions are inviting all school age children (age 8-18) to compete in a contest to design the cover of the program for this summer’s Waconia Veterans Weekend!  The program will be used for the games featuring the Wounded Warriors.

The child who designs the winning entry will serve as the bat boy or bat girl for the celebrity softball game featuring media personalities and sports figures against the Wounded Warriors that will be played at Brook Peterson Park in Waconia on Friday, July 12 2013.

Entries should incorporate:
– Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team logo
– The Lions logo & city of Waconia
– U.S. flag.
**Children are also encouraged to consider using military branch logos — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard — but if one branch is used, all should be used. **

Entries Guidelines:
– Children should create their covers on a 8-1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper
– The child’s name and parental contact information should be included on the back of each entry.

 Completed entries should be dropped off at the Waconia Patriot office (8 Elm Street S) by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 15.
