WFLA currently has a Youth Art Contest and an Adult Photo Contest for its members. Winners receive cash prizes and are pictured in the Fraternal Herald and on the website. Essay and poster contests, and preschool coloring activities are also held periodically.
To celebrate National Photo Month in May, we sponsor a photo contest for the adult members of wfla. Submit one entry with any of the themes, scenic, human interest or animals and you could be a winner. Winning photographs will be featured in the November Fraternal Herald.

Youth Art Contest
Youth Art Month is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children. Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. These skills are vital to the success of our future leaders, our children.
This year our theme is What You Want To Be When You Grow Up. Draw a picture of yourself at your dream job, or how you see yourself as an adult. Be creative in how you see yourself in the future. Check out last year's winners located in the below link.
