VFW student scholarships are available

Dear Editor:

Each year the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW helps the Veterans of Foreign Wars with their scholarship programs – Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen. Both programs award prizes at the local, district, state, and national levels.

High school students compete by writing and recording a broadcast script on the theme “Is Our Constitution Still Relevant?” Junior high school students compete by writing a 300-400 word essay on “What I Would Tell America’s Founding Fathers.”

The deadline to submit these projects to VFW Post 1388’s chairman is Nov. 1, 2012. For more information and an application, please call me at 740-929-2617 after 5 p.m. on week days.

God Bless Our Veterans and America.

Lauralyn V. Palmer, Pres. Ladies
Auxiliary VFW Post 1388
