VFW Essay Winners
The Veterans of Foreign War every year sponsors an essay competition that gives students an opportunity to write essays expressing their views on an annual patriotic theme. The 2016-2017 theme was "The America I Believe In." The contest consists of four levels. The first level (entry) is sponsored by local VFW Posts. Post winners advance to the VFW District (regional) level where the one first-place winner is advanced to the VFW Department (state) level. The one first-place winner at the Department level is then advanced into the VFW national competition. The winner from each Department (state) then competes for the national prizes. The first-place national award is currently $5,000 plus an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the winner and a parent or guardian.
Shane Flaherty and Srikar Kavirayuni read their essays at the local VFW dinner on Saturday, November 19.
