BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- Two sixth-graders from Roy W. Brown Middle School recently took first and third place in Bergenfield VFW Memorial Post 6467's annual Patriot's Pen essay contest.

Franz Gloria won first prize, and Sarthak Gandotra came in third. "Both students wrote beautiful essays on what freedom means to them," the school district said in a Monday Facebook post.

The VFW-sponsored Patriot's Pen contest is conducted nationwide, and over 131,000 sixth- through eighth-graders submit essays each year. Local winners can then compete at the state and national levels.
