Students needed to participate in the PTA Men’s Essay Contest.


In 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, stepfathers, mentors, coaches and friends) impact the children they care about. When writing their essays, students can consider many questions including (but not limited to):


• Why is this male role model important in your life?


• What life lessons, ethics, or skills have they taught you?



• Why do you look up to him and appreciate having him in your life?


• How would your life be different without this person? • How would other kids benefit from having a similar role model in their life?
