The Sioux Center American Legion Auxiliary Unit 199 and Sioux Center Wreaths Across America sponsor a poster contest for K-12 students each year. Posters must reflect the mission of Wreaths Across America as well as this year’s theme (mission: “Remember Honor Teach” – theme: “I'm an American!”). Please do not use any other phrases. Posters must be made on regular poster paper. The size of the poster can range from 11” x 14” up to 22” x 28” only. Mediums including paint, crayon, colored pencils, charcoal, magic markers, or whatever inspires the students can be used.
Posters are judged based on the following criteria: 50% for universal appeal (layout), 30% for artistic ability (design and color), 10% for originality, and 10% for neatness. The contest is divided into the following 4 divisions and prizes will be awarded for each division:
