Tuttle '20 Wins Audio Essay Contest

Senior Will Tuttle's essay was selected as the local winner of the Voice of Democracy Audio Essay Contest sponsored by the Veterans of Foreigh War (VFW). Will received a $600 scholarship award and now moves onto the state level of the competition.
Established in 1947, the 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 40,000 students in grades 9-12 from across the country enter to win their share of $2.1 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 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.

Will is the son of Jeff and Tara Tuttle of Price Hill.
