Joliet Middle School participated in the VFW- sponsored Patriot's Pen essay contest. This is a nationwide sponsored youth essay competition giving students an opportunity to write essays expressing their views on annual patriotic theme. The 2015-2016 theme was "What freedom means to me". This theme went along with the middle schools veterans day presentation.
