Both of these programs give students the opportunity to express their opinions on a patriotic theme and improve their writing and speaking skills while competing for worthwhile scholarship awards and prizes.

The Voice of Democracy theme is "Is There Pride in Serving In Our Military?" This contest is open to students in grades 9-12, as well as home schooled students.

The students must submit a recorded essay that is 3-5 minutes in length.

Both contests are judged at the local, district, and state levels. Awards are also given at those levels.
