To all Middle School Students,


Attached you will find the link for the rules and the student entry forms for this year’s annual Patriot’s Pen Essay Competition.  Please feel free to make additional copies of the forms if needed. Be sure to read all the rules and the judging criteria as you prepare your essay.


I am pleased to announce that our local VFW Post will again offer cash prizes for the top essays.  The local winners will be announced by mid November and the awards will be presented at City Hall in early December.


Reminder – This year’s theme is “What Freedom Means to Me”  Remember, I must receive all completed entries no later than November 1, 2015. 


Please do not hesitate to call me if you need additional information.  My home phone, address, and e-mail address are listed below.
