Memorial Cadence concert

June 19, 2000

The Women's Memorial Cadence Call Contest allows kids to discover how poetry, music and cadences are related and why rhythm and repetition are important to marching. Entrants can show what they know about the importance of motivation, consistency and teamwork.

Possible topics include 225 years of women's service in defense of America, specific women serving in or with the U.S. military or women's service during a specific era. Students in elementary, middle and junior high school are eligible to participate as individuals or in groups. Entries must be postmarked no later than Sunday, Dec. 31.

There will be first-, second- and third-place prizes for elementary and middle/junior high school-age winners. Winning entries will be displayed at the Women's Memorial during Women's History Month in March, printed in the Women's Memorial Foundation newsletter and included in Women's Memorial Foundation educational materials.

Entries must include at least one historical date, at least one military service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) or military support organization, the significance of the Women's Memorial and a bibliography of sources.
