Each semi-finalist will be interviewed by Operation Homefront staff, and award recipients will be chosen by a committee including active duty military personnel, Family Readiness Support Assistants, teachers, military mothers, and community members. 

The recipient of the Military Child of the Year® Award for each branch of Service will be announced March 5.  Each award recipient will receive $5,000 and will be flown with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C. for a special recognition ceremony on April 11, 2013.   

Ideal candidates for the Military Child of the Year® Award demonstrate resilience and strength of character, and thrive in the face of the challenges of military life.  They demonstrate leadership within their families and within their communities.

"The sons and daughters of America's service members learn responsibility and citizenship at a very young age," said Jim Knotts, President & CEO of Operation Homefront.  "Children in military families understand sacrifice, service, and strength of character.  This is what the Military Child of the Year® Award honors."
