VFW Kicks-Off Annual Essay Competition

VFW’s annual Patriot’s Pen youth essay competition for middle school students in grades 6th through 8th provides the opportunity to compete and win thousands of dollars in national awards.  The VFW enacted the Patriot’s Pen competition in 1995 to encourage young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society by composing a 300-to 400-word patriotic-themed essay.  The theme for the 2016-17 competition is “The America I Believe In.”  Deadline for student entries is Nov. 1.  For information, call VSW Post 6917 at 575-621-5839 or email
