Voice of Democracy Essay Contest

Smiley face

Local VFW Post #8560 wants everyone to be aware of the Voice of Democracy essay contest for High School students and the Patriot Pen contest for Middle School students. Students representing 17 posts across East Texas will compete first. Winners can advance to State and National competition with scholarship money on the line. VFW representatives will be providing all Hopkins County schools with applications and rules.

Each year, nearly 40,000 high school students from across the country enter to win a share of the $2.2 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded through the VFW’s Voice of Democracy audio-essay competition.

The VFW established the Voice of Democracy program (VOD) in 1947 to provide students grades 9-12 the opportunity to express themselves in regards to democratic ideas and principles.

The national first-place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school. Other national scholarships range from $1,000-$16,000, and the first-place winner from each (State) VFW Department wins an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
