YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS 


Dedicated to encouraging a better understanding and appreciation of America, the VFW's Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen essay competitions help foster patriotism among today's youth. The programs also promote friendly competition and rewards success in the form of some $3 million in scholarships. 
 
This year's theme for both programs challenged students to answer the question, "What Makes America Great?"  The Patriot’s Pen essay competition is open to all students in grades 6-8, with a top National award of $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.  More than 111,000 essays were submitted by students across America.
