Voice of Democracy winner

Since 1947, the Voice of Democracy has been the Veterans of Foreign Wars' (VFW's) premier scholarship program. Each year, nearly 40,000 high school students compete for more than $2 million in scholarships and incentives. Students compete by writing and recording an audio essay on an annual patriotic theme.
 
The national first-place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school. A complete list of other national scholarships range from $1,000-$16,000, and the first-place winner from each VFW Department (state) wins a minimum scholarship of $1,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
 
The VFW in conjunction with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Army JROTC program annually provide a platform for students to participate in this essay contest.
 
This year, Garfield Bulldog, Fatima Reyes was a 4th place winner of the local event.
