HOW THE CONTEST WORKS 


Based on the nominations submitted, VFW local chapters (called Posts) will recognize one outstanding teacher in grades K-5, 6-8 and 9-12.  Winning names from Posts are submitted to Districts for the next level of judging.


From each District, the winners are forwarded to respective VFW State Departments. Once judged on the State level, the winners are passed to the VFW National Headquarter for consideration in the national awards contest.


VFW Post 8063 is a sponsoring local Post and we provide a local award.
