Laurie Sparwasser, Chairman


Voice and Democracy and Patriot Pen Essays are due to your Post on October 31st.   Please have your judges picked and ready to judge your entries.  They are due to your District Chairman by November 15th.

I am attaching the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen Chairman’s Manual.  All the information you need for these programs is noted in this attachment.

I have been seeing some auxiliaries with a lot of Patriot’s Pen entries.  

Remember, you can send a 1st place winner to District for every 15 entries for both the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen Programs.  Please do not limit your Post to only one winner to District if you have a lot of entries.

Please call me at 618-593-4376 or email me at for any questions you may have.

The 2018-19 Voice of Democracy theme is:
“Why My Vote Matters”

The 2018 – 19 Patriots Pen theme
Why I Honor the American Flag

Peace for our Veterans
