On June 13th and 14th 2009, the Hampton Roads Naval Museum Educators celebrated Flag Day by holding a coloring contest for guests. Participating guests were asked to create a flag based on the original description of our 13-Star American Flag in 1775. We had over 70 participants in two different age categories, and everyone did a fantastic job. But, we had to crown two winners that best exemplified creativity and patriotism. Winners recieved a flag that was flown on the USS Wisconsin! Here they are:
Jacob Claytor (Age 10) Collinsville, TX
Leah Zajac (Age 6) Rochester, MI
Congrats to both of you for a job well done!
