The VFW Patriots Pen is a youth essay competition that gives students an opportunity to express their views on democracy with the prospect of winning U.S. savings bonds.
The local VFW awarded three Adrian students cash prizes for their essays. First place: Spencer Kimberlin, $100; second place: Alex Tindle, $50; third place: Christian Graham. Their essays will be entered into the national contest. At the national level, the top 43 winners will receive at least a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond.
