With the challenges North Carolinians are facing due to Hurricane Florence, we have decided to postpone our planned event – Denim, Boots & Brushes, which was scheduled to take place at The Fair Barn on October 12. Click here for more information

A Stroke of Patriotism created My America as an opportunity for artists in North Carolina to  assist our veterans and their families in times of need. Entering the contest is free and you can submit up to two entries. The contest calls for artwork that depicts how you see America. Use your artistic skills and your imagination to express what our great country means to you. Encourage your friends and family to vote for you and then participate in an open house in December, 2018. Contest winners will be announced on October 15 and will receive a total of $4,750 in prizes.

The winning entry will be featured on the Stroke of Patriotism 2019 poster and will be used in other promotional material.

When your entry is ready and  you have written your Profile and "Story Behind My America," click on "Enter Contest" and upload your image together with your story and profile. 

Please refer to the rules and enter now! Please note that you can enter two pieces of artwork and are encouraged to do so.

About A Stroke of Patriotism

A Stroke of Patriotism has assisted more than 30 veterans and their  families in many different ways.  This includes assistance with rent, utilities, vehicle repairs and payments, roofing, plumbing, home repairs, mortgage assistance and school supplies.  The needs are many and each application is thoroughly investigated to ensure that the veteran receiving assistance has been honorably discharged and is truly in need of assistance.  In all cases a personal interview is conducted and payments go directly to the holder of the debt or provider of the service.


A Stroke of Patriotism is an independent 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization. For more information on A Stroke of Patriotism, please visit our website or find us on Facebook.
