The VFW Post 7108 and its Ladies' Auxiliary sponsor the annual Patriot's Pen Writing Contest in honor of Veterans' Day. The theme this year was "What Patriotism Means to Me". Social studies students at all grade levels here at Briscoe participated. Essays are judged on knowledge of theme, theme development, and clarity of ideas. Winners are chosen locally, move on to the state level, eventually competing for a national-first-place prize, hoping to earn an award of $5,000 and an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C.
Briscoe had 2 winners in the local contest: Madison, an 8th grader, won 2nd place, and Marco, a 7th grader, won 3rd place. The students will receive their award at a ceremony December 9th @ 7:00 pm.
