Operation Homefront is accepting applications for Military Child of the Year

(KSWO)-  Operation Homefront is now taking applications for their Military Child of the Year Awards.  There’s a chance to win $10,000 and a trip to our nation’s capital.

There will be 7 awards handed out. Six of them will represent a branch of the armed forces in which a parent serves — the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard.  These awards recognize recipients for their scholarship, volunteerism, leadership, and extracurricular involvement. The seventh award will be the Military Child of the Year. This will go to the kid who designs a solution to a local, regional, or global problem.

Students can apply for the Innovation Award themselves.  And anyone can nominate a deserving youth for a service branch award.  Nominations and applications are being taken at MilitaryChildoftheYear.org through December 4.
