CBC Searching for Artist to Build Monument for Veterans

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- Calling all artists.

Columbia Basin College is accepting proposals for a monument to be built on campus honoring veterans.

Veterans Committee Chairman Jason Schlegel says CBC is looking for a creation that is timeless, gender neutral, and captures the spirit of service of veterans.

"We really want the piece to speak to all generations of veterans that are still alive to include Vietnam-era veterans, any remaining World War Two veterans, Korean War veterans and possibly future veterans."

Schlegel says the 400 veterans currently enrolled at CBC will vote on the finalists. The committee will then pick the winner in June.

CBC hopes to raise $75,000 through private donations made to the CBC Foundation to create and build the monument in time for Veterans' Day in November.
