DoDEA students show off their creativity and dedication to philanthropy

Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas

Yokota Air Base – The Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas (CFC-O) is pleased to announce that the winners of the 2019 CFC-O DoDEA Art and Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contests have been selected. Each year the CFC-O teams up with DoDEA to give students an opportunity to show off their talents and display their philanthropic hearts. Submissions are gathered and submitted to the CFC-O Local Federal Coordinating Committee at the Pentagon for judging.

“The submissions were excellent in both contests,” said CFC-O Director Samantha Barrett. “Only half a point separated some of the PSA scores.” The CFC-O plans to incorporate the winning artwork into their upcoming marketing campaign and hope to coordinate with AFN to air the winning PSAs during the 2020 campaign. “We love seeing the creativity and passions of the students. This is one of my favorite parts of the annual campaign,” added Whitney Woerner, the contest lead. “I can’t wait for next year’s contest”.
