Hicksville Middle School students Jeevan George, Rafeed Hossain and Lovepreet Kaur have been declared winners in the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ Patriot’s Pen essay contest. Kaur took first prize, after finishing second last year, followed by George and Hossain. Twenty Hicksville Middle School students submitted essays for consideration.
The VFW-sponsored competition required students to compose essays around a central theme. This year’s was “What Patriotism Means to Me.”
Meghan Dowling-Lewis is the proud social studies teacher of all three winning students. The students will be recognized at a special ceremony at the local VFW post later this year.
