WSPTA ESSAY CONTEST DUE MONDAY, MARCH 1

This statewide essay contest explores the important and varied influencers in the lives and education of children—from the children’s perspective. Every day, children are exposed to a variety of people and each one has an opportunity to influence the path a child decides to take. Whether they are someone who sparks an interest in a new topic, helps the child work through a problem, shapes the kind of person the child wants to become by modeling behavior, simply listens to them, or any number of other actions, this is the platform for students to share their appreciation.
 
The application deadline is March 1 each year.
 
Please mail submissions to:
Washington State PTA
Attention: WSPTA Essay Contest
15 Oregon Avenue, Suite 202
Tacoma, WA 98409-7463
