Kenston Forest School students won at the district level in the VFW the Voice of Democracy audio-essay program for high school students and the Patriots Pen program for grades 6-8. The Voice of Democracy program provides high school students with the unique opportunity to express themselves in regards to a democratic and patriotic-themed recorded essay. Each year, nearly 40,000 9-12 grade students from across the country enter to win their share of $2 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded through the program. The Patriots Pen program encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300-400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW commander in chief. Mackenzie Harmon, left KFS sixth grader of Blackstone placed third for Patriot’s Pen and William Kreis, KFS 11th grader of Crewe placed third for Voice of Democracy.
