Armed Services YMCA Launches 2019 Art & Essay Contest

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

The Annual Contest Allows Children to Express Their Military Lifestyle

The Armed Services YMCA is happy to announce the launch of the 2019 Art & Essay Contest, co-sponsored by GEICO Military. The annual contest is open to children grades 1-12 of active duty or retired members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard/Reserves. Submissions should be received by March 15th, 2019 and winners are announced in April.

Military children communicating through artistic expression:

The Art Contest is specifically for children grades 1-6. This year’s themes are “My Day at the ASYMCA” and “My Military Family.” There is one winner for each branch of the military. Winners of the Art Contest receive an iPod touch courtesy of GEICO Military.

Children grades 1-12 are encouraged to participate in the Essay Contest. The topics for this year’s essays are “How the ASYMCA has helped me,” or “My greatest challenge as a military child has been..” Winners in grades 1-8 receive an iPod. Grades 10-12 winning submissions score an Apple iPad.

“The ASYMCA Art & Essay contest shines a spotlight on the children of our military family.” said William French, President and CEO of the ASYMCA. “Military children face very unique challenges. The contest is an opportunity for them to voice their stories while helping others understand their experience and recognize their resiliency.”

The contest launches during Military Family Month, which was established by the Armed Services YMCA in 1996. While most recognize the strength and sacrifice of the service member, few recognize the family effort. Military Family Month recognizes the contributions of service members, spouses, and children that make up our military family.

According to the Department of Defense, military children move an average of “six-nine times during a school career.” In addition to a parent’s deployment, their lifestyle can present many unique challenges. The ASYMCA Art & Essay Contest encourages military children to communicate their perspective through art and writing. The ASYMCA looks forward to the hundreds of creatives they receive each year from military children and the opportunity for the public to acknowledge their sacrifices and resiliency.

The Redback Company Holds Giveaway

Monday, August 20th, 2018

The Redback Company is delighted to announce that our big give away is now open!

There are 3 prizes:
1st Prize – 3 Cierzo Shirts; Khaki, Camo & Limited Edition, made from a military parachute; and a Timmy Hat.
2nd Prize – A Cierzo Shirt in your choice of colour
3rd Prize – A Timmy Hat.

The winners will be drawn live on our Facebook page at 20:00 UTC+1 on 31 August 2018.


The Redback Company is a Veteran owned, vibrant, outdoor clothing, equipment and lifestyle brand. We live the lifestyle we are promoting. You can’t miss the outdoors. It’s on your doorstep, literally!

The outdoors is the greatest leveller there is. When you are outside everyone is equal in front of nature.

At the Redback Company, we spend as much time as we can outdoors.  And, we have used a great deal of different clothing over the years.  Nothing has been quite what we are looking for. So, we decided to make our own!

Cierzo Shirt

An ultra-lightweight, windproof layer. Inspired by garments originally made by Special Forces Soldiers out of discarded parachutes. The Cierzo Shirt uses modern fabrics to create a garment that packs down to a very small size and weighs almost nothing, yet is very effective.

Use it as a windproof outer layer or a lightweight intermediate layer. Wear it out running or hiking. Put it under a damp outer layer while it dries out. Throw it in the bottom of your day to day bag to whip out when you need it.

Generously sized, we’ve had a 6’8” (2.5m) Cave Troll wear one of these comfortably!

The Redback Company Brand Ambassador Glen Steyn from ExpedOrange says:

The shirts are really good. Lightweight and can’t believe how small they pack down to!”

Timmy Hat

Fun fact the spider in our logo is called Timmy!

Imelda Marcos had shoes, we’ve got baseball caps. We wear a baseball cap pretty much every day so we thought we’d make our own.

The mesh crown makes sure that your head doesn’t overheat, providing day long comfort. The camo pattern and embroidered “Timmy the Spider” make sure you have something strikingly different from the rest of the caps that are available out there.

Comfortable and hard wearing, your Timmy Hat will look better the more you wear it!

The hats will fit heads from 52 to 64 cm (20½ to 25¼ inches)

The Redback Company Brand Ambassador Glen Steyn from ExpedOrange says:

The cap is really good…I really like the cam on it and the mesh keeps your head cool.
