VFW Scholarship Opportunity
Do you have a child in high school who is planning on going to college? Did you know the VFW has a scholarship competition where the grand prize is $35,000 scholarship?
The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Voice of Democracy (VOD) scholarship competition has been in existence since 1947. It is easy to enter. Scholarships and monetary awards are available at the Post, District, State and National levels. The Department of Texas VFW presents a $10,000 scholarship to the winner at the State level. All State level winners receive at least a $1,000 scholarship at the National level.
Please – tell me more!
This year’s VOD theme is “Why is the Veteran Important”. Each participant submits a 3-5 minute speech along with a hard copy of the speech, completely and legibly filled out entry form and submit it to your local VFW post no later than October 31, 2022. If the package will be submitted to the Rockport Post 3904, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information for delivery of the submittal.
The VOD competition is open to all students in grades 9-12. Rules, requirements and eligibility information are available here. To hear the winner of last year’s competition, please watch the VFW video at time mark 1:09:10.
