Our team entry is called, "We Honor You". Approximately 1 year ago, I invited Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient James McCloughan to our school to speak. This was a very positive experience and our school was very honored. This started me thinking about different ways that young people can show their appreciation for the people who protect our country. Our Art Prize entry recognizes and honors the United States Military forces. It consists of 4 panels, one each for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. The participating students are honoring the military by volunteering their time to create these pieces of art. They are made out of stained glass and are in the mosaic style.
