MVES Honoring Our Heroes Essay Program


EVERYDAY HEROES: THE POWER OF ONE
 
We are kicking off the 2022-2023 Honoring Our Heroes Essay program!
 
Honoring Our Heroes is a student writing contest designed for you to write about your real-life heroes and role models.
 
A hero is defined as a person who is admired or idealized for their courage, outstanding achievements, distinguished abilities, and/or their noble qualities. The person you write about should display one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion.
 
We want you to recognize someone who has made an impact on your life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher. A famous individual such as a professional athlete or movie star CAN be a personal hero if they have made an impact on your life through their dedication, perseverance, or other characteristics and NOT because of their fame.
 
The student entry form can be found on the here. Entries are due by January 31, 2023.
 
Please email your completed entry form, hero’s photo (optional), and essay file as attachments to heroes@mountainviewpta.org. Please include the student’s name in each file name (e.g., “Jane Doe_Heroes Entry Form,” “Jane Doe_Heroes Essay,” “Jane Doe_Hero’s Photo).
 
Here is also a helpful article with tips for parents who wish to support their student writers. You can also download the file by visiting this address: https://mlc-wels.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Parents-as-Writing-Partners.pdf
