Design contest launched for Edmonds veterans’ memorial

  • Comment

The City of Edmonds in Washington has launched an open design contest for a new veterans’ memorial

The new plaza at 250 Fifth Avenue will pay tribute to the ‘patriotic and courageous’ local men and women who served the United States.

Proposals must include new seating, landscaping and space for flagpoles and military seals.

The competition is backed by the City of Edmonds and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) of America.

VFW member Ron Clyborne told My Edmonds News: ‘Edmonds is one of the few cities of its size without a tribute or memorial to veterans. The plaza is meant to reflect the bravery, sacrifice and strength of the service members who will be recognized and remembered in this special spot in Edmonds.’

The city 18 kilometres north of Seattle has a population of just under 40,000 residents.

Submissions should include a two-page written summary and five digital display boards.

The deadline for entries is 15 October. A winner will be announced in December.
