Quilt Contest Sponsorship Available

Quilt Contest Sponsorship Available

We would like to encourage non-quilters and quilters to make Quilts of Valor for those wounded serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. As such we would like to sponsor a Quilt Contest with 5 categories for each of 2 groups, beginners/first timers and experienced quilters. The categories will be:

  1. Flag Wavers
  2. Love Always, the USA
  3. Stars and Stripes Forever
  4. Heart full of thanks - Welcome Home!
  5. The Honor is all ours
One quilt in each category will be awarded $1000 for a total of 10 awards totaling $10,000. An additional $5,000 will be required for to advertise the contest.

All submissions will go to someone either physically or psychologically wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan. Our intention is to receive between 8 and 10,000 Quilts of Valor for presentation to those who have served. An additional cost of storage and shipping to service personnel in the US is not included in this estimate.

Details and specifics to be determined at a later date with input from the sponsor.

Our intention is to publicly display the awarded Quilts of Valor on the 4th of July.

Sponsorship Available: $15,000
