Recognizing, Remembering and Honoring Veterans and Active Military for Our City and Surrounding Areas

4th Annual Veterans Recognition Banners

The City of Edwardsville's Hometown Hero banner program entered its fourth year in 2022. They were displayed from September 28, 2022, through Veterans Day, November 11, 2022.

The registration process to sponsor a veteran or active military member for the next season's banners will begin in spring 2023. At that time, we ask that you fill out the registration form, submit a digital picture (hi-resolution images with no less than 300 DPI) and a $100 sponsorship fee. In the spring, the form to submit and pay online will be available at the link below (the link is currently NOT active). 

If you have questions about the program at any time during the year, or would like to submit in person, please contact Desiree Gerber, City Administration Office, at City Hall, 2nd Floor, by phone 618.692.7531 or email

 Registrations and photos for the 2023 round of banners must be submitted by August 15, 2023.
