This year’s theme for the high school was “Is this the country the founders envisioned?” Winners for that contest included first place, Abraham Guernsey; second place, Emily Gonzalex; third place, Savannah Dufore. The theme for the middle school was “What is patriotism to me?” The winner of that contest was Rebecca Guernsey, who is pictured with VFW Auxiliary President and Chairman Ann Biek.
