Voice of Democracy

2017 - 2018

  Voice of Democracy 

Established in 1947, our Voice of Democracy audio-essay program provides high school students with the unique opportunity to express themselves in regards to a democratic and patriotic-themed recorded essay. Each year, nearly 40,000 9-12 grade students from across the country enter to win their share of $2.1 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded through the program. 

The national first-place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school. A complete list of other national scholarships range from $1,000-$16,000, and the first-place winner from each VFW Department (state) wins a minimum scholarship of $1,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. Want to apply? Read the rules and eligibility requirements and download the entry form and brochure before you submit your entry to VFW Post 4008.. 

The 2017-18 theme is: 
American History: Our Hope for the Future

Entries begin at our Post 4008. Once the student creates their essay and completes burning the audio version to a CD/flash drive, they can submit their typed version, CD/flash drive and the Voice of Democracy entry form to VFW Post 4008 / Ladies Auxiliary no later than November 1, 2017.
