Winners of the 2018 "Honoring Our America Heroes" art competition display their art.

FALLBROOK – The third annual "Honoring Our American Heroes" art competition is calling all junior artists in the community to create a "patriotic themed work of art honoring our military, first responders and our country."

In keeping with the theme of the competition, organizers have renamed the competition "Celebrating America." Fallbrook Propane Gas Company continues to be the sponsor.

The junior art competition is open to prekindergarten through eighth-grade students. Prekindergarten to first-grade students will compete against each other, second to fourth grade will compete against each other and fifth through eighth-grade students will be competing against each other. Grades 9-12 will still participate in the "Honoring Our Heroes" art competition.

Artists may select their medium of choice. Drawings or paintings must not be larger than 12-inches in any direction. See entry rules for more detailed information.

The awardees will be given gift cards: first place, $75; second place, $50, and third place, $25. Additional awards of $75 each will be presented by Phyllis Sweeney: The Encouragement Factor and the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce. Also, Fallbrook Propane Gas Company will be choosing the "Sponsor Award" and a prize of $75.

Artwork must be delivered to The Gallery FAA, Saturday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Gallery FAA is located at 127 North Main Avenue.

The entries in the "Celebrating America" competition will be on display at The Gallery FAA, Aug. 21 to Sept. 15. Voting will be by the community. A reception will be held Thursday, Sept. 19, where the winners will be announced and awards presented.

At that time, Fallbrook Propane Gas Company will be making a special contribution to Fallbrook Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924.

A free workshop is offered Saturday, Aug. 10, at The Gallery FAA. All art supplies and materials are included. Attendees must pre-register for the workshop, as space is limited. For times, registration and additional information, contact Anita Kimzey at (714) 222-2462 or (760) 731-0277 or email
