Each year, nearly 38,000 high school students from across the United States enter to win a share of the $2.2 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.

Felisha Moore was the Freeman District Champion and Lyndsey Ehmen placed third for the Voice of Democracy Contest. As one of the eleven District Champions across the State of Nebraska, Felisha took fifth place in the State Competition held at The Capital on Friday, February 2, 2018.

This year twenty-eight Freeman seniors entered the contest sponsored by the Burrows DeBoer Post 10042. Each student submitted an original 3-5 minute essay on the theme “American History: Our Hope for the Future.” Local judges evaluated the essays on originality, content, and delivery.

Locally Lyndsey Ehmen was the first place winner, followed by Felisha Moore in second place, and Jacob Gramann received third place.  The students were awarded with cash awards by the VFW coordinator Dave Page.
