The VFW is accepting entries for the 2018-2019 VFW Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen scholarship competitions. The deadline for student entries in both contests is Nov. 1.

The VFW’s scholarship competitions are dedicated to promoting patriotism among America’s youth. Students are asked to submit an essay in response to a question or statement on a subject that encourages them to consider how democratic ideals and principles apply to their lives. Each year the VFW awards more than $3 million in scholarships and awards to middle and high school students who participate in the two competitions.

This year’s Voice of Democracy theme asks students, "Why My Vote Matters” The Voice of Democracy scholarship competition is an audio-essay competition open to students in grades 9-12. The national winner will receive a $30,000 scholarship. 

The Patriot’s Pen competition is open to students in grades 6-8. This year, students are asked to reflect on the statement, "Why I Honor the American Flag” The national winner will receive a $5,000 award.
