Student Patriotic Writing Contests Deadline Approaches



The VFW and VFW Auxiliary Post #3486 will again sponsor two patriotic writing contests for students. 
The Voice of Democracy program is open to students in grades nine through 12 who are enrolled in public, private, parochial school or home school study programs in the United States. The 2021-2022 theme is America: Where Do We Go From Here? Freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors write an essay on the theme and then they record (three to five minutes) on a flash drive. 
The Patriot’s Pen essay contest provides sixth, seventh and eighth grade students the opportunity to express their opinions on a patriotic theme. This year's theme is How Can I Be A Good American? All students enrolled in public, private, parochial school, or home school study are eligible to enter. 
Rhonda Preller, Senior Vice-President of Post #3486 VFW Auxiliary and Scholarship representative, stated, “Entries need to be submitted before November 1, 2021 to me or the contact person with the Milbank School District.” Natasha Karels is the high school contact person for the Voice of Democracy and Greg Cantine is the middle school contact for the Patriot’s Pen. 
The local winners are submitted into the regional and state contests. State winners then compete at the national level where scholarships are given.
Rules and entry forms can be found at the website under the community/youth section. Contact persons also have entry forms with rules attached.
