2016-17 Honoring Our Heroes Contest
EVERYDAY HEROES: THE POWER OF ONE
We're excited to have kicked off the 2016-2017 Honoring Our Heroes Essay program on November 11th, Veterans Day. Honoring Our Heroes is a writing program that encourages students to discover, honor, and write about real-life heroes - role models displaying generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage or compassion. Students are asked to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on the student's life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.
What a great opportunity to honor someone who may not even know what a difference they are making in your student's life!
The student entry form can be found on the PTA website. Entries are due by January 27th. Please contact Helen Greenaway with any questions.
