The results are in and we can now announce the 2017-2018 winners of the Loudoun County VFW Voice of Democracy (HS Level) and the Patriot's Pen (MS Level) Youth Essay Contests, along with Loudoun County VFW's Teacher of the Year and Public Servant Citations!
Additional congratulations for Anya Ambarish for earning 2nd place at the State Level Patriot's Pen contest.
