VOICE OF DEMOCRACY/PATRIOTS PEN

  • Voice of Democracy - The Voice of Democracy is an essay contest that gives students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to express their democratic ideas and principles. The District winners will attend a banquet for VFW student scholarships in January where the top five essays are recognized and monetary prizes are awarded. The first-place student will present the winning essay and will receive a free trip to Washington, D.C. to join the other state winners for special activities.
  • Patriot's Pen - Each year, Junior High School students in grades 6-8 can compete in the Patriot's Pen by writing an essay on a patriotic theme. The first-place winner from each state competes to win one of 46 national awards totaling $46,000. For more information contact your local VFW post.
