Artists on Deadline for CBC Veterans Memorial

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -Local artists have one week to show Columbia Basin College their ideas for a new veterans memorial.

The CBC Foundation hopes to erect the monument on campus in time for Veterans' Day in November.

Artists have until next Monday to submit their proposals. The 400 veterans currently enrolled at CBC will vote on the finalists, and the veterans committee will pick the winner early next month.

The foundation hopes to raise up to $75,000 through private donations to pay for the memorial.

The committee chairman says he wants the memorial to speak to all generations of veterans.
