About the event
2024 American Heritage contest theme: “Celebrating Stars & Stripes – Forever in Our Hearts Through the Arts.”
The 2023-2024 American Heritage contest theme has been announced: “Celebrating Stars & Stripes – Forever in Our Hearts Through the Arts.” The historic clothing era is the Belle Epoch era of 1890-1899 in commemoration of the Spanish-American War.
Kimberly Zeman, the National Chair, American Heritage shared, “How do you show your love of country and its symbols through your creative endeavors? How do your talents in your chosen art form create heartfelt gratitude for America and all she stands for? How do the Stars & Stripes embody our American cultural arts and crafts traditions? We are looking forward to your sparkling creations!”
The American Heritage Committee is excited to have our own community on the DOC! We hope that you will join us to discuss all things American Heritage. Share your sparkle and interest in the pursuit of the variety of arts and crafts celebrated by the American Heritage Committee. Our goal is to encourage members to tell the story of our rich and diverse American Heritage. Join us on our community page to chat, craft, create, share or just admire! We hope to see you there!
