Each year, more than 3,500 high school students from across the country participate in the VFW Auxiliary’s Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest. The contest began in 1979 to recognize up-and-coming artists and encourage patriotism in youth.  This year the national winner will receive a $15,000 scholarship.

VFW IN THE CLASSROOM

As combat veterans, we play an important role in educating our nation's youth about the principles and ideals upon which America was founded. VFW members regularly provide students with rare insight into the great sacrifices our service members make to maintain freedom for all of us.
