Honoring our Heroes Essay Contest 2018-2019

EVERYDAY HEROES: THE POWER OF ONE

We are excited to be kicking off the 2018-19 Honoring Our Heroes Essay program on November 11, 2018 - 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 or by clicking here. Entries are due by January 15, 2019. Please contact Amy Loggins at amyloggins3@gmail.com with any questions or you can visit the ECCC website at http://ecccpta.org/honoring-our-heroes/.
