The Month of the Military Child

Back in 1986, the Department of Defense dubbed April, Month of the Military Child. Every year in April since then, military children have been recognized and celebrated.
Since 9/11, over 2 million U.S. children have experienced parents leaving their families to go on deployments. Now think about all of the times those children have to relocate with their families to new locations leaving behind old friends and family, only to find out they have to make new friends yet again. And, on top of that they have to learn how to deal with long separation periods from their parents during deployments. It’s situations like these that make military children strong and resilient!

Once again, Nabisco® and Coca-Cola® have teamed up together to help celebrate and support the 1.2 million U.S. military children worldwide by awarding educational scholarships.

All you have to do is text the word PURPLE to 89884* to be entered for a chance to win up to $5,000 for your child’s education! There will be one Grand Prize winner who will receive a $5,000 check, along with five First Prize winners who will receive a $1,000 check each. Just think how that could help your child’s educational goals. Maybe you need to make a tuition payment, or maybe your child has specific books required for their courses that you still need to buy. Or does your child need a new laptop with the new version of Microsoft Word for their class? The options are endless with how that can help your child’s education! Nabisco® and Coca-Cola® have made it their mission to help by proudly sponsoring the Month of the Military Child!
