"Why are YOU thankful" Essay Contest

The PTA of MVP is proud to announce our organization's first-ever essay contest for the entire student body to participate!


"Why Are You Thankful?"


From Monday, November 9 through Monday, November 23 at 6:00pm, Students in all grades may submit between 250-500 words detailing their personal interpretation of America's number-one celebrated holiday, THANKSGIVING!


The best-scored essay in each grade will be awarded prizes on Tuesday, November 24 during the PTA meeting that evening.  All three students will be invited to read their work aloud during the Zoom event! 


Originality, grammar and punctuation are important.  No plagiarism allowed.  Take your time and enjoy this opportunity to the fullest! 


All entries will be read and judged by the PTA Executive Board.  Kindly send your submissions in PDF format to pta@middlevillageprep.org and do not forget to include your full name and class on the document!


This essay is not a school requirement.  Participation is voluntary but all are welcome to be part of this special experience.  We hope you will join us because, after all, we are grateful for each and every one of our Most Valued Persons! 


Feel free to ask any questions by replying to this email.  Thank you and have a great day!
