Please note the information below and consider writing about your hero!

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.
