Winners of the VFW contest

On Veteran's Day in November, we announced the essay winners from our Local VFW Post essay contest. Those winners' essays went on to the District level. Today, December 10th, District 8 held a luncheon and awards ceremony for their district VFW essay winners. Invitations were mailed to the top 3 in each category to attend this meeting.

District 8 covers multiple counties including Bonneville, Butte, Clark, Custer, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton.

West Jefferson had great representation! Here are the district results of those from our school:

Teacher of the Year: Tom Mackay

Patriot Pen 1st Place: Isaac Hall

Voice of Democracy 1st Place: Ethnie Shaffer
Runner-up: Jordyn Torgerson (not pictured)

(The other runner-up winners were from other schools and are not pictured here.)

Each 1st Place winner received a $100 cash prize and a certificate. The runner-up winners received $50 and a certificate.

Congratulations to all and Good Luck at the State Level!!
