Teachers of the Year

Each year, we honor a teacher in the elementary, junior high and senior high school categories for their efforts to teach students about being responsible citizens, about appreciation the freedoms that they have and about the role that veterans have played in keeping America free. Department-level teacher winners advance on to the National VFW contest (national link).

 In addition, the PA VFW and its Auxiliary hold a coloring contest each year for grades 2-5 to help young students develop patriotism; one winner per grade. Judging is held in April and Post winners should be sent to the Program Chairman by March 10th. Earlier deadlines apply for submitting entries at the local Post level.
