Please help fund Youth Scholarship & Veteran Programs in District 16, Department of Oregon, Veterans of Foreign Wars. The VFW is a Non-Profit Charitable Organization where your Donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions. Our big Youth Scholarship Program is the Banquet to celebrate the Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen Winners from our community and is run strictly on donations and sponsorships. This is a program open to all students in the community regardless of your family ties to the military (it is open to all students). This is for all Middle and High School grades as long as you meet the guidelines for product submission. The winners are chosen from the submissions to each Post and then judged at the District Level to see who is chosen to move to the next level. The Students get the experience of a life time to compete and even win some scholarship/prize money. The scholarship/prize money is dependent on funding. We need your help to keep this youth program alive.
