DODEA Europe students, we want to hear from you! Your experiences as military kids are valuable to your community.

Stars and Stripes will continue its annual Month of the Military Child (MOMC) celebration by publishing students’ stories on our special website April 1-30. A number of submissions will also be selected weekly to appear in a special pullout edition of the global Stars and Stripes newspaper.

This year, we are excited to announce the DODEA Europe PTO with the most submissions will be awarded $500. Read the official rules and fine print for more information.

It is our hope teachers will use this project as a classroom activity or writing assignment. For a list of prompt ideas, see page two of this document: www.nctsn.org/sites/default/files/assets/pdfs/10things.pdf

Details for teachers, parents and students:

  • There is no word count requirement.
  • Stories may be first person.
  • Poems, drawings and photos will be accepted.
  • For attachments: Scan, save as JPEGS and upload to the website.

Note: Stories will be edited to remove profanity, but we will allow students to have their say.

IMPORTANT:  Children’s last names will not be published as a privacy and OPSEC precaution. Please confirm if you would prefer to use first name only or first name and first initial of last name.

Upload submissions to stripesrewards.com/militarychild.

We look forward to seeing your fantastic submissions again this year!
