The Unstoppable Power

The Pen Force

Empowering young people to find and develop a creative voice that is uniquely their own by engaging students in writing, contests, tournaments and providing a platform for publication, advocacy, leadership opportunities and development.

Our Commitment to Creative Expression

Because the ideas, dreams and beliefs of today's youth form the foundation of tomorrow's communities, in communities worldwide, and in military communities. The Military Children Pen Force is dedicated to helping young people find and develop a creative voice that is uniquely their own. It is a mission we will realize when we inspire every teacher and challenge every student to truly embrace the art of creative expression through writing as a life skill.
