The Art of Being a Military-Connected Child: Submit Your Art!

Since MCEC began the “Call for the Arts” in 2002, thousands of military children - from all over the world, from every service, of all ages - have mailed us their drawings, poems, and interpretations of what it means to be a military child. Artwork in the visual arts is featured at the MCEC Annual conference each year. It is utilized in the On The Move magazine, the annual calendar, the annual conference program, and other MCEC publications.

Writing, including essays, poetry, and short stories, is featured in the annual conference program, the On The Move magazine, the annual calendar, and other MCEC publications.
