Branson-Hollister VFW Post 11290 recently sponsored a Patriot’s Pen writing competition among area schools. The essay contest asked middle school students to write on the topic “What I Would Tell America’s Founding Fathers.” The writing competition is also sponsored nationally by VFW. The students are under the instruction of Junior High history instructor John Mathews.

Local level winners included Branson students:

Cecilia Corbin – first place

Jacob Banks – second place

Adriauna Youngdahl – third place

The students were presented awards by local Post 11290 representatives Gerald Long and Richard Baehr. District winners advance to state competition early next year.
