Become an Independent Contributor

Are you a 7th-12th grade or college student who wants to participate in our after-school program, but you do not have a VHP Chapter at your school?  Are you looking for a home school or service learning project? Are you an adult who wants to preserve a family member's service story? 

Veterans Heritage Project now has an Independent Contributor Course just for you. Enrollment closes Oct. 1 with final submissions due Dec. 15, You and your veteran will be invited to participate in the annual Community Reception and Book Signing.

The system is easy to use; accessible through any screen or device; and allows self-guided progress with key deadlines. You can work independently with the opportunity to have VHP Program Staff and Editorial Committee review your work and provide feedback.

Independent Contributor Course
The online course guides you step-by-step through conducting an oral history interview with a veteran; writing and editing your veteran's story for publication in Since You Asked;™ and preserving the recorded interview in the Library of Congress. 
The award-winning program develops writing, confidence, character, and 21st century skills, and you become a published author!

You (and your parent if you under the age of 18) will be asked to sign a waiver. The participation fee supports the publication of the veteran's story. Certificate of completion provided.
