Students Needed to Participate in the WSPTA Men’s Essay Contest

n an effort to help promote male engagement around the state of Washington, the objective of this contest is for students of all ages to write an essay about a male role model that has had a profound impact on their life. All men involved in a child’s life (fathers, uncles, grandpas, brothers, step-fathers, mentors, coaches and friends) impact the children they care about. Essays must be mailed and received at the WSPTA office by March 1. Resource materials, including writing prompts and grade divisions, can be found on the WSPTA website. New this year is a promotion ideas flyer and a high school poster. If you are interested in being a judge (everything is done online) or serving on the committee, please contact Men’s Essay Chair, Laura Peterson at MensEssay@wastatepta.org.
