VFW Post 1936 announces essay contest winners

February 10, 2008

The theme of this year's Patriot's Pen contest for middle school students was, "I Am An American Patriot." The contest was sponsored by William D. Byron VFW Post 1936.

The students were honored Jan. 26 at a dinner and awards banquet for the winners of the contest.

In the high school category, the post is sorry to say that there were no students from any of the county's high schools taking part in this year's "Voice of Democracy" contest.

The winners were Christana D. Brogoard, E. Russell Hicks Middle School, third-place winner of $100 savings bond; Sean R. Snyder, Boonsboro Middle School, second-place winner of $200 savings bond; and Jessica L. Taylor, E. Russell Hicks Middle School, first-place winner of $300 savings bond. Jessica also was the first-place winner of the VFW District 3 contest and received $75. On Sunday, Jan. 27, Jessica competed at the state level, but did not win. However, she did receive another $75 for her effort.

Glenn E. Trumpower, this year's co-chairman of the program, said the VFW would like to thank the parents of all the contestants for encouraging them to compete in the essay contest.
