VOICE OF DEMOCRACY

WHAT IS THE VOICE OF DEMOCRACY PROGRAM?

      Since 1947, the Voice of Democracy has been the Veterans of Foreign Wars' (VFW's) premier scholarship program.  Each year, nearly 40,000 high school students compete for more than $2 million in scholarships and incentives. Students compete by writing and recording an audio essay on an annual patriotic theme. This year's theme is, American History: Our Hope for the Future.

 
WHY SHOUD I ENTER?
      Prizes and scholarships can be awarded at the Post, District, State and National level.  Department (State) winners receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., March 3-7, 2018, to tour the city, be honored by the VFW and its Auxiliary and receive the portion of $154,000 in national awards, the top scholarship being $30,000.
