Honoring Our Heroes is a student writing program designed for students to write about their real-life heroes and role models. The person you write about should display one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion.
We want you 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 your 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 life!
Information about the due date and rules will be announced at a later date.
For any questions regarding the Honoring Our Heroes Contest, please contact our Honoring Our Hereos Co-Chairs, Marcia Silverberg and Rachael Norie.
