Patriot's Pen Youth Essay Competition Winners
Patriot’s Pen is a VFW-sponsored youth essay competition that gives students an opportunity to write essays expressing their views on an annual patriotic theme. This year’s theme is “America’s Gift to My Generation.”
ISM’s 8th graders enter every year through the Bloomington Post and ISM is proud to announce that Noor N., Celine B., Nicole B., took first through third places.
ISM congratulates Noor’s on placing first in the state competition for the VFW's Patriot Pen Essay contest.
Noor's essay now advances to the national competition. She is the first ISM student to have won not only the district but also the state competition. We wish her well in the national competition!
