preparedness. Prepared Kids from across the globe shared their creativity
and unique perspectives by creating entries ranging from drawings
to video and poetry. Thousands voted for our finalists. These are
the winners as chosen by your vote!
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
