Hicksville Middle School students participated in Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The Patriot's Pen program is designed to foster patriotism by allowing students the opportunity to express their opinions on democracy based on an annual theme. Hicksville Middle School students wrote essays on the theme, “What is Patriotism to Me?” The veterans from the William M. Gouse Jr.  VFW Post# 3211 in Hicksville read the student essays and selected the student winners. Congratulations to Najwa Sahar in grade 7 who was selected as the first place winner.

Congratulations to their social studies teachers, Mr. Joseph Hartig and Mr. Boyle, for encouraging their students to participate and excel.
