We Love Our Veterans

Competition in Appreciation for Nations Veterans

The Army Education Outreach Program (AEOP) has partnered with Future Engineers to host a nationwide mini-challenge for students in 4th-8th grade. 

AEOP challenges students with the task of creating a wearable 3D-designed pin which signifies support for US Veterans in some way. It is free to enter and can be done both individually or in conjunction with a teacher.

Finalists in the top 10 will have their designs printed out and provided to veterans at the National Veterans Museum in Columbus, Ohio and will receive a professional 3D print of their pin.

The first-place winner will win a 3D printer donated to the school, library or organization of their choice.

The challenge began on September 8, 2021 and will close at 10pm PT on Veterans Day – November 11, 2021.
