Clinton American Legion Post 103 looks to support youth, giving them opportunities to earn scholarships and learn.
Commander Josh Thielen mentioned two new contests that 7th to 12th grade could be a part of, one of those is a speech.
Another contest they are looking for youth to take part in is an essay contest. The essay requires no more than 500 words says, Thielen.
If you are interested in entering either contest reach out to the Clinton American Legion Post 103 on 219 N. Elizabeth St. or by calling 217-935-5183 for more information.
