2012 Scholarship winner is announced at Memorial Day Ceremony.
Truth in Recruiting – Madison VFP tries to educate and inform young people to the realities of military service and give them options. We have developed relationships with teachers and administrators in certain schools that permit us to set up informational tables and discuss the alternatives to military service while recruiters are in the building.
Scholarships – Madison VFP sponsors an essay contest in which students are asked to address the question “Why war is not the answer.” High school seniors in Madison and surrounding areas can apply as announced at the high school. Each year one winner from a Madison high school is awarded $1,200 to enroll at Madison College (MATC). Most winners from five rural districts are awarded $500 scholarships. For more information on rural schools, contact David Giffey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Paul McMahon, email: email@example.com, for Madison high schools.
