PATRIOTS PEN


WI VFW INVESTS OVER $75,000 IN PATRIOTIC YOUTH ESSAY PROGRAMS!
MORE THAN 7,500 STUDENTS COMPETE FOR AWARDS, HONORS AND SCHOLARSHIPS!

 

The VFW's commitment to encouraging patriotic values is a long-established tradition. It also creates valuable stepping-stones to success for competing students. Shown here, Voice of Democracy Wisconsin 2020 winner is shown reading his First Place entry to the crowd gathered at our annual MidWinter Conference held the weekend of February 1st in Green Bay. Winning Entries at State level went on to National Competition in Washington DC. 
 
State Commander Donald Lynch congratulates all our many participants and encourages all to enter next year's competition as well. He also thanks all participating Posts and Districts for their enthusiastic support of this core Program.
