The voting results are in and Ready Army is proud to present the winners of the first annual Prepared Kids Competition!

The winners will be translated into products to support the Ready Army campaign and inspire Army Families all over the world to Build A Kit, Make a Plan and Be Informed. Thank you to all Prepared Kids, their families, and the military communities who created entries and took time to vote for their favorite Prepared Kids!
