The Bremerton~Olympic Peninsula council of US Navy League sponsored two contests in conjunction with the Lone Sailor Memorial project to be installed on the new Bremerton Marina Breakwater.  One contest was an essay and the second contest was a work of art representing the Lone Sailor Memorial.  Both contests were around the theme of   “What does the Lone Sailor Memorial represent to you?”   

Invitations to participate in both contests were sent to all students enrolled in grades 9 through 12 in a Kitsap County public school, parochial or private school, or who were home schooled, were eligible to participate.   

Both contests were designed to make the public more aware of this project dedicated to the men and women who serve our nation, past, present and future.  Donations thus far indicate we will be able to hold our commissioning ceremony later this summer when we can have the artist and representatives of the Washington DC Navy Memorial Foundation attend.    

Winners of both the essay and art contests will be presented their awards at the Armed Forces Day gala event held at the Admiral theater here in Bremerton on 17 May 2008 and at the Gala on May 2009.   

As youth coordinator for the Bremerton Lone Sailor project, Lcdr Doug Cook USNRet was proud to announce that Bremerton high school had both the first and second place winners of the art contest. 

Lisa Stith was the councils second place winner and will be receiving an I Pod at the Armed forces day event and Amanda Benson will receive a new laptop.  Congratulations and certificate presentations were made on the high school TV during morning announcements on 3 March 2008.  Their teachers, Don Evans and Steve Priest were also mentioned during the broadcast for encouraging such fine entries.  

Photos of these winners will also be posted on the lonesailor-bremerton.org website shortly.
