Honoring Our Heroes Student Writing Contest

Honoring Our Heroes is a writing contest developed in 1995 by the Eastern Cobb County Council of PTAs. The program was designed to encourage students to discover “real life” heroes who have shown generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion. The creators of the program wanted students to redefine the heroes they saw portrayed in the media — cartoon characters, professional athletes, rock stars, etc. — and instead recognize the true heroes in their lives. Our real heroes are grandparents, parents, siblings, doctors, policemen, soldiers, teachers, and anyone else that has made a real and positive impact on a student’s life.

One winner will be chosen from each grade level in the school and submitted to the county for judging. Details and entry form can be found at

Due date for student entries is Monday, February 1st. No late entries will be accepted.
