Each year the VFW has two contests for students in junior high (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12). The junior high contest is called Patriot’s Pen and the high school is Voice of Democracy.

Patriot’s Pen requires the student to write an original essay consisting of 300-400 typewritten words. This year’s theme was “What I would Tell America’s Founding Fathers.”

Voice of Democracy requires the student to record an original 3-5 minute essay on a standard cassette tape or CD with this year’s theme “Is There Pride in Serving in Our Military?” If the student’s essays make it to National VFW they may receive awards of $500 to $5,000.
