NEW SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY

9-12 grade students

Voice of Democracy

The VFW is dedicated to promoting patriotism and investing in our future generation. If you are a democracy-loving high school student interested in a $30,000 college scholarship or a patriotic middle school student interested in winning $5,000, these scholarships may be for you.

 

Established in 1947, our Voice of Democracy audio-essay program provides high school students with the unique opportunity to express themselves in regards to a democratic and patriotic-themed recorded essay. Each year, nearly 64,500 9-12 grade students from across the country enter to win their share of more than $2 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded through the program. 

 

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. Want to apply? Read the rules and eligibility requirements, and download and complete the 2021-2022 Voice of Democracy entry form as all student entries must be submitted to a sponsoring local VFW Post by midnight, Oct. 31.

About Our Counseling Program

The focus of the guidance and counseling program at Newport High School is on the developmental needs of all students. Counselors demonstrate respect for the dignity and worth of each individual. Counselors coordinate the school guidance program and involve all staff members in designing and implementing plans to meet three major goals.

  1. Educational Development
  2. Personal/Social Development
  3. Career Development

The school counselors serve the needs of students in maximizing their learning experiences while providing specifically for their future needs. The counselor helps each student to think through his/her problems or concerns and plan accordingly. Each student will be assigned to a counselor who will help with educational, personal and occupational choices and decisions.

Our goal is to provide graduates with the competencies necessary to make self-directed, realistic and responsible decisions, and foster individuals who will be contributors in a changing society.
