Miranda Zeman, Holden Scott, and Katie Unvert 2016 V.O.D. Freeman winners.

Each year, nearly 40,000 high school students from across the country enter to win a share of the $2 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded through the VFW’s Voice of Democracy audio-essay competition. The Voice of Democracy Program is open to students in grades 9-12 who are enrolled in a public, private or parochial high school or home study program in the United States and its territories.

This year thirty-two Freeman seniors entered the contest sponsored by the Burrows DeBoer Post 10042. Each student submitted an original 3-5 minute essay on the theme “My Vision for America.” Local judges evaluated the essays on originality, content, and delivery.

Katie Unvert was the first place winner, followed by Holden Scott in second place,and Miranda Zemann received third place. The students were awarded with cash prizes by the VFW coordinator Dave Page and Superintendent Randy Page.
