In honor of Veterans Day, Heddington Oaks is hosting a Poster Art Contest for Peoria County students in grades K-5. Participants are encouraged to create artistic visions that convey thanks and appreciation to veterans and current military personnel. The theme of this year’s contest is “A Salute to Veterans.” The poster contest is intended to highlight the history, purpose, and importance of Veterans Day to students.
Students' artwork will be on display at Heddington Oaks during the week of Veterans Day, from November 10 - 14, 2014.

The winner of each category will receive an Art Prize Package.
