Through Our Eyes: Military Children Poetry Showcase

The Virginia War Memorial is proud to announce its first ever “Through Our Eyes” virtual poetry showcase in honor of the Month of the Military Child and National Poetry Month this April 2021. We will be accepting poetry from Virginian students of all ages (K-12) whose parent or parents are serving or have served in the military. Submissions will be highlighted on the Virginia War Memorial’s website for the entire month of April, designated the Month of the Military Child in the United States.

The prompt for this year’s poetry showcase is:

“What I love about being a military child.”
