Hingham Director of Veterans' Services SCPO Keith Jermyn, USN (Ret.) wishes to call attention to a very special December event honoring local youth who entered an essay contest with the Hingham Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) William R. Cutler Post 6053.

The Patriot Pen and Voice of Democracy essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society. Students entering the contest are required to draft a 300 to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in- Chief.

This year's theme was: "My Pledge to Our Veterans."

Nine students will be honored including three students from Saint Paul School and three Hingham Middle School students receiving first, second and third place Patriot Pen awards and three Hingham High School students receiving first, second and third place Voice of Democracy awards.

Each winner will be presented with a check, a Commemorative Medal, and a Certificate of Achievement.

Saturday, December 10, 2022 at 10 a.m.

Doors open at 9:30. Coffee, light breakfast and refreshments will be provided. A tour of the GAR Hall will follow the awards ceremony.
