Do you know a real life hero?
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.
This year, we’d like our students to choose the hero of their choice - teachers, doctors,
policemen, coaches, parents, siblings and anyone else that has made a real and positive impact
on a student’s life.
