Itâ€™s incredibly inspiring to hear high school students take pride in America.
Young people all across the nation recorded audio essays on â€œWhat Makes America Greatâ€ for the Voice of Democracy competition. One winner from each state has been chosen and now qualifies for the grand prize â€” a $30,000 scholarship!
The grand-prize winner will be announced at the VFW Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Watch a live stream of the Parade of Winners on March 2, at 6 p.m. (EST) to see who wins.
Help us celebrate the next generation of proud Americans as they compete for more than $2.1 million total in scholarships and incentives. Please share the audio clips with your family and friends.
