Patriots Pen Contest

Ava Hendricks, 6th grade,  came in third place for the region in the VFW 2021-22 Patriots Pen contest.  The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society by writing a 300 to 400-word essay, expressing their views on a patriotic theme. This year’s theme was “How Can I Be a Good American?” She and the other 6th grade enrichment students attended the VFW banquet on Sunday, Jan 15, where she received her award.  Congratulations, Ava!
