Honor Our Heroes
PTA Writing Contest K-5
Select a real life hero who has made a difference, and who has shown one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, generosity, courage or compassion. Describe how this hero has had an impact on your life, directly or indirectly. You must know the person.
Format: Entries are limited to ONE 8-1/2 x 11-inch piece of paper. The student may use both sides of the paper. Entries may be handwritten or typed.
Kindergarten – 2nd grade Pictures drawn by the student may be included as part of the entry, but entries are to be judged primarily on content, not artistic ability.
Identification: Each entry must be accompanied by a completed entry form with phone number, grade and school. All entries will become the property of the council PTA.
Judging: The school will have a panel of judges. There will be a first and second place for each grade level. Certificates will be handed out for 1st and 2nd place at the PTA meeting held on December 5, 2017. For the county level, we will choose a total of 3 entries from the school: one from K-1, one from 2-3, and one from 4-5. Entries will be judged on the student’s ability to articulate the qualities of the hero and to describe the manner in which the hero affected the student’s life, either directly or indirectly.
Deadline for School level: Entries are due by November 17, 2017.
County level: The local unit PTA will send winning entries to the council PTA by December 7, 2017. The entries submitted will be published in a bound book which each school winner will receive.
Daves Creek will host an “Honoring Our Heroes” reception at school on December 5th. Special recognition will be awarded to students at this reception.
