Mt Bethel Elementary School PTA’s 2023 Honoring Our Heroes Contest

Is your student interested in celebrating his or her everyday hero? Honoring Our Heroes is a great way to do so! Honoring Our Heroes is a writing contest designed for students to write about real-life heroes and role models.


This is a chance to recognize someone who has made a personal impact in your student’s life, such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher. Also, a famous individual such as a professional athlete or movie star CAN be a personal hero, as long as they have made a positive impact on the student's life through their dedication, perseverance, or other characteristics and NOT strictly because of their fame.


Essays are due to the MBES PTA by February 17th, 2023. A box will be placed by the front office on Monday, February 13 – 17th to collect all essays and entry forms.
