VO-67 Association Visual Arts Competition
The VO-67 Association is proud to announce a new and exciting art competition for our younger squadron associates. It is our hope that this competition will generate lots of interest and grow into a yearly event incorporating different art subjects and increased award amounts. The first art subject and criteria are outlined below. It should be noted that all of the submitted art will become the property of the VO-67 Association. Artists must have an active VO-67 Association member sponsor. This includes Charter, Associate, Life or Honorary Life members. All winning art and many selected entries will be displayed on the VO-67 web site. Some art will become a permanent part of the VO-67 archives and will be displayed at all squadron reunions. Some may also be auctioned to fund the next competition. Much thanks to VO-67 shipmate Ron Velho for providing the first cash awards to fund this program. Please encourage all younger members to participate and become part of VO-67 history through art. A downloadable PDF entry form has been provided on the web page.
