Every year the Military Child of the Year Awards are held to celebrate and recognize the achievements of military children! Hundreds of military teens, ages 13 to 18 years old are nominated by a teacher, parent, mentor, or guardian. These teen candidates should demonstrate resilience, strength of character, and the ability to thrive in the face of the challenges military life can bring. Operation HomeFront will be accepting nominations until December 3. The Awards Gala will be held in Washington, D.C., on April 11, 2024- which is also the Month of the Military Child! Military Child of the Year winners receive a $10,000 cash reward, a laptop, and are flown with a parent/guardian for a three-night stay in Washington.
