Are you looking for some money for college?
Are you a thinker and have good opinions?
Do you like to write?
The Veterans of Foreign Wars has a program for you!
High school students can enter the Voice of Democracy contest. In this program you write your response to the question of the year, record your oration presenting those thoughts, then enter our contest to win cash prizes. Here’s a link to the rules and entry form.
Middle school students can enter the Patriot’s Pen contest. This program is in the form of a written response to the question. It’s submitted to our post and winners progress up the ladder to big prizes. Here’s the link to the rules and entry form.
Elementary students in grades 3, 4 & 5 are encouraged to enter the special Youth Essay program run by the Washington Department, Veterans of Foreign Wars. This program is also a written response to the question of the year. Here’s the link to the rules and entry form.
Grab your chosen writing device — be it a pencil, pen, tablet, typewriter (remember those?), computer keyboard or chalkboard — and get your opinion out there for all to read. You might win the big prize, but you can’t win if you don’t enter.
Please note the entry requirements, especially the date deadlines.
