Voice of Democracy

Created in 1947, the Voice of Democracy (VOD) scholarship program is an audio-essay contest for high school and home schooled students in grades 9-12 that annually provides more than $3 million in scholarships. The program is Eagle┬ádirected by VFW National Headquarters and supported at the VFW Department (state) and local Post level. This years theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief is “Why Veterans are Important to our Nation’s History and Future?” The entry deadline for the 2014-2015 program is November 1, 2014.

VFW Post 3377 strongly supports the VOD program. We offer scholarships totaling $3000.00 distributed between the Post’s 1st ($1500), 2nd ($1000), and 3rd Place ($500) winners. The 1st Place winner is then automatically entered in our District 28 competition with a chance to compete at the Department and then the VFW National level where the 1st Place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship. For additional information, call the Post (512) 282-0487.
