Sponsored by Forsyth County Council PTA & PTO, Haw Creek Elementary PTA is proud to announce that our annual essay contest is underway!
This is a wonderful opportunity for a student to practice writing skills and focus on real-life heroes rather than the ones that the media and pop culture spotlight.
Want to participate?
Select a real-life hero who has made a difference and has shown one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, courage or compassion. The hero must be someone that the student knows personally, and not a public figure like Steve Jobs or a fictional character like Superman. The student should show how this person has had an impact on his or her life.
Entries will be judged on student’s ability to articulate the qualities of the hero and how they have impacted their life, not grammar. The top three essays in each grade level will be announced in January and will be invited to attend ceremony at Haw Creek Elementary recognizing their accomplishment. Ceremony will be held on January 18th. Additionally, there will be a Forsyth County Reception in the evening of Tuesday, March 13th at Brandywine Elementary. This reception is for 1st place essay winners at each grade level, their family, and their respective Hero. Heroes will be invited via email to attend this special night.
ESSAY DEADLINE: December 18, 2017
