— Project Help, a local charity devoted to helping veterans, is hosting their first annual poster contest for students all over New Jersey.

The theme is “I Love America” and open to all budding young artists. Prizes will be awarded in each category grade category and will be judged on design, originality and content. There will be three place winners in each of the category grades of K-4. 5-8. 9-12.

All artwork must be 2 dimensional, no digital entries will be accepted. Poster should include the project name or Help Logo and size cannot exceed 18” x 24”. Entries must include a signed (by parent) entry form which can be downloaded at www.ProjectHelp.US.

All entries must be received by February 23. 2018 at Project Help, 55 Bank St., Sussex NJ 07461. All entries become the property of Project Help.

The awards ceremony will be in March and entrants will be notified of the date, time and place. Once the awards are given, the posters will go on display all around the area at schools, Libraries and other public places.

Through this poster contest, we hope to engage our young people with a renewed sense of patriotism and respect for our wonderful country and for the men and women who served in the military to preserve our freedom.

Project Help, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Charity, is incorporated in Sussex County.

“Our mission," said Sandy Mitchell, executive director, "is to help Veterans and their families during difficult times. We cover the seven northern counties and moving to the southern counties, assisting Veterans in getting their lives back together.”

Mitchell is also the founder of Project Help and knows only too well the aftermath of war. She was married to a Vietnam Vet and has a special place in her heart for all veterans of every war.

“Many are lost in war and many as the result of being in war,” said Mitchell, who lost her husband after he returned home from Vietnam.

Project Help is growing quickly and expansion creates a massive need for reliable volunteers, committee and board members. If you would like to help, just contact us at 973-875-2068.
