Marlborough – The Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club (MJWC) is sponsoring a writing contest to honor teachers for National Teacher Appreciation Day, Tuesday, May 5. This contest is open to all students in the Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School, Hudson Public School District, Immaculate Conception School, and Marlborough Public School District.
Here’s how it works: Students write an essay or poem answering one of these two questions:
“What makes your teacher so good at their job?” or “How does your teacher inspire you?”
Students in grades K-2 should write one or two sentences and draw a picture answering one of the questions. K-2 students are allowed the help of an adult to do the actual writing, but both the words and drawing must come from the student. Each entry should be submitted with the entry form. Students in grades 3-4 will write three to four paragraphs and those in grades 5-12 will write 300 word essay or poem. A panel of judges will choose one essay from each district with both the student writer and the teacher receiving prizes.
Deadline for entry is Wednesday, April 1. The winning teacher and student from each school
district will be invited to the MJWC business meeting on Tuesday, May 5 to receive an award. The entry form and rules can be found on the Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club website located at www.marlboroughjuniors.org. It may also be found on the websites of the participating districts.
