Veterans Day Writing Contest

The Prompt

On November 11th each year, our nation celebrates veterans who have selflessly served and protected our great country and its freedoms. At TCTC, we will hold a school-wide assembly to honor all veterans with a special focus on the ones closest to us. Your writing could be a part of this event! The task is to write a letter or a poem related to Veterans Day. The format is up to you - you can choose to direct your letter or poem to someone in particular or to veterans in general.
