Awards were given out on Veterans Day for the Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest. The winners each receive a plaque, along with the 1st Place prize of $30 and 2nd Place prize of $15. All participants receive a certificate for participating in this contest.

VFW Post and Auxilliary are proud to announce this year’s winners as 1st Place - Kaylee Arndt, and 2nd Place - Kaleb Arndt. This year’s theme was “The America I Believe In.”

Over 70 students participated and big thanks are sent to Fillmore Central teachers Jackie Whitacre and Gerri Nielsen, who are always so willing to help with this project.

Essays are judged on theme knowledge, theme development, and clarity of ideas. All essays are numbered so judges do not know the writer of the essay until the end when the name is revealed. The winning essay is sent to district judging, and then hopefully on to national judging.

These essays always carry a lot of meaning to our VFW members, and this year’s essays truly carried a message of honor to our veterans, thankfulness for priveleges and rights of our country, and hope for the future.
