Do you know a real-life hero?


Honoring Our Heros 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. This year, we'd like our students to choose the hero of their choice - teachers, doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters, coaches, parents, siblings or anyone else who has made a real and positive impact on their life.
