Listen to the top essays, including the winner from South Carolina
 

The grand-prize winner will be announced at the VFW Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Watch a live stream of the Parade of Winners on March 2, at 6 p.m. (EST) to see who wins. 
 
Help us celebrate the next generation of proud Americans as they compete for more than $2.1 million total in scholarships and incentives. Please share the audio clips with your family and friends.
