Utah PTA, in partnership with Utah National Guard, is also holding an essay contest for Military Families. The three winning students (categories – Elementary School, Middle School /Junior High, and High School) from  Military Families will be honored at this concert and receive a valuable prize.

A Military Family is one that has father, mother, sister, or brother presently serving in the Active, Reserve or National Guard (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard). If children live with guardians who are presently serving, they are also included. Multi-generational military family service will be honored.

The theme for the essay contest is “Why I am proud of my Veteran and our Family’s Military Service!” The essays must be no more than 500 words. You can email or send your essays to our Utah PTA Military Families Appointee, Kathy Allred, at the addresses below. Word format is preferred. The article can be sent anytime before the deadline. The articles must be in by Friday, October 14, 2016. If you have any questions or need more information please contact:
