Lindale Junior High School students were awarded the top three prizes in the post level competition of the Veteran of Foreign War’s Patriot’s Pen writing contest.

LJHS 8th grade student Ye Hyun Lee won first place in VFW Post 9828’s competition and second place in the regional competition. Her entry will advance to the state level for a chance to qualify for the national competition. Lee was awarded a medal and will receive a $150 scholarship.

Eighth grader Colt Oliver placed second at the post level competition and third place in the regional competition. His entry will also advance to the state competition.

Kelsey Crews, also an eighth grade student, placed third at the post level.

The essay competition topic was “What Would I Tell America’s Founding Fathers?” The Patriot’s Pen writing contest is conducted nationwide annually with the goal of giving students an opportunity to write essays expressing their views on democracy, according to contest information. 

Contest entries are judged on three criteria: knowledge of the theme, theme development and clarity of ideas.
