Making his voice be heard was Emmanuel Hermosillo of Cozad, who was recently unveiled as the VFW District 13 Voice of Democracy winner.
Emmanuel Hermosillo’s entry will now compete against the best in the state of Nebraska in Lincoln in January. Hermosillo expressed his thoughts and opinions on ‘Why I’m Optimistic About our Nation’s Future’. He was the local winner of the audio-essay competition for the Grant Cook Jr. VFW Post 890 of Cozad and now has been named the winner of the District.
Down the road a goal of all Voice of Democracy entrants is the $30,000 T.C. Selman Memorial Scholarship Award that is given to the National Winner.
