As we all are aware the membership in the Department of New York American Legion has diminished in membership and that has a direct bearing on the New York American Legion Press Association. To maintain our newsletter and annual $1000.00 scholarship, we need all the help that we can get with such low membership.
We are asking for a $50.00 donation from your post. We have maintained a membership in the New York American Legion Press Association at $10.00 per year. This membership does not cover the cost of our day to day operations, let alone the quarterly newsletter and awards luncheon at the Department Convention.
If your post donates to the New York American Legion Press Association, we make your post a member of the New York American Legion Press Association which enables your post to be eligible to submit your post publication for the Best Paper contest judging. The three winners in each of the seven categories are awarded a plaque, recognized at our annual luncheon and published in our quarterly newsletter.
The costs incurred for the Best Paper contest, the day to day operations, the judging of the entries
(which are judged by professionals in the literary world), the making of the awards as well as awarding of the $1000.00 scholarship is for an eligible student entering collage or a under graduate program in the Public Relations fields. These costs are not covered by the $10.00 membership.
Therefore, we are asking your post for a $50.00 donation or whatever your post can afford to assist in the operation of this most valuable organization in the Department of New York American Legion.
Without your financial assistance we could not exist. Please provide the info. below and send your $50.00 donation or whatever your post can afford to NYALPA PO Box 424 Sanborn, NY 14132.
The New York American Legion Press Association is a 501-C4 organization which makes it a qualified donation from your Bell-Jar account.
