Legacy Award Ceremony 2013

On Sunday evening, November 10th, at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center, a Legacy Award Ceremony celebrated the service of our past and present military and honored the youth of today.

The Wall of Honor hosted the award ceremony to pay tribute to their volunteers, the winners of the youth patriotic poster/essay contest, and to honor five area Veterans of the Year.

The patriotic poster and essay contest is driven through the public and private schools and was judged by the Enid Art Association and a panel of military veterans and volunteers.
