Young Lives, BIG Stories contest

In celebration of MOMC, Army Child and Youth Services hosts the Young Lives, BIG Stories contest, throughout September.. The contest gives Army youth the chance to tell their story about what it means to be a military kid. All military children, preschool through 12th grade, can participate. Youth participants can tell their story on ‘what it means to be a military child?’ for the chance to win prizes. The goal of this contest is to tell the Army’s story through the eyes of our children. Prizes will be given to one overall winner and the top entries in each category.
