Dixon High School senior Camarina I. Augusto recently won the local VFW Voice of Democracy Award presented by the Dixon Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8151.
The Voice of Democracy competition provides high school students with the opportunity to speak out on freedom and democracy and requires entrants to write and record a three-to five-minute speech on a patriotic theme. This year’s theme was “Why I’m Optimistic About our Nation’s Future.”
Augusto received a VFW Achievement Medal, Certificate plaque and a Scholarship check.
Assisting Dixon VFW Post Commander Brock McMahon with the presentation was Dixon Vice-Mayor Dane Besneatte.
