The deadline for military children ages 6 to 17 to enter the “Way Cool Creativity Contest” is Sept. 5 at 11:59 p.m.

So, break out your crayons, paint or video camera and find your most creative way to thank the 1800 Blue Star Museums for giving military families free admission from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The rules are simple:

  • There are two categories to choose from: (1) artwork or video short (no more than one minute max!) inspired by your visit to a Blue Star Museum or (2) artwork or video short (no more a minute in length) that expresses thanks to the art community who made the program possible.
  • Entries will be judged based on their overall appeal, quality, creativity and incorporation of the Blue Star Museums star in the artwork or video.
  • Include your name, email and phone number, as well as your parent(s) name and branch of service.
  • PDF and JPG files accepted, the higher the resolution the better.
  • Entries will be grouped by: Ages 6-12; Ages 13-17.

Thanks to technology, entries are easy too:

  • The entry form is available HERE.
  • Take a picture of your artwork and email the jpeg or upload your video to YouTube and send us the link using our handy dandy entry form. Include a short description of your museum experience or inspiration to museums@bluestarfam.org.
  • Include your name, email and phone number, as well as your parent(s) name and branch of service.

All entries will be posted online and then voting begins. Prizes include a $500, $250 or $100 savings bond! OR, an IPad for first place, Nikon Cool Pix P100 for second and for third place, an Ultra HD Flip Video.
