Dear Dept Of Michigan,
High school students across the country recorded audio-essays on this year's theme: "My Responsibility to America."
We've selected one winner from each state to qualify for the grand prize, a $30,000 scholarship to the college or technical school of their choice.
The grand-prize winner will be announced on Monday, February 27, at the VFW Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Log on at 6 p.m. (ET) for a live stream of the Parade of Winners.
Show your support for these patriotic teens by sharing their audio clips with your friends and family.Together, we can celebrate the next generation of proud Americans!
