Working alongside America's youth and instilling a sense of patriotism has always been, and will always be, a VFW priority. Learn more about the VFW's youth and education programs below. Youth Scholarships - Our youth scholarships challenge students to reflect on our nation's history, their ideals and principles, and their own experiences based on a patriotic theme. Teacher of the Year - Each year the VFW recognizes three exceptional teachers; one each from the elementary, junior high and high school levels; for their outstanding commitment to teach Americanism and instill patriotism in their students.
