VFW Presents Awards

On Thursday, December 7, members of the VFW Post 1984 in Canton presented awards to those students who entered this year's Voice of Democracy contest.  Each participant composed a speech on the topic "Why Is Our Democracy Important?" and recorded themselves presenting their orations.  Seventeen students from Mrs. Postin's English III class entered this year, setting a record.  Two winners were chosen from the group to advance to the district level, Samantha Thum and Maddison Omohundro.  All participants were given cash prizes for their entries.
