Voice of Democracy Competition

Voice of Democracy 2021

It’s incredibly inspiring to hear high school students take pride in America.

Young people all across the nation recorded audio essays on “Is This the Country the Founders Envisioned?” for the Voice of Democracy competition. One winner from each state has been chosen and now qualifies for the grand prize — a $30,000 scholarship!

Listen to the top essays, including the winner from Oregon.

Augustina Decker, Oregon

The grand-prize winner will be announced live on the VFW’s Facebook page during the virtual Parade of Winners event, April 1, at 7 p.m. CDT.

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.
