Honoring our Heroes Essay Contest 2019-2020
EVERYDAY HEROES: THE POWER OF ONE
Honoring Our Heroes is a writing contest designed to encourage 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 to recognize someone who has made an impact on his/her 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! A famous individual such as a professional athlete or movie star CAN be a personal hero if they have made an impact on the student's life through their dedication, perseverance or other characteristics and NOT because of their fame.
