PTA Men's Essay Contest - Men Making a Difference

This statewide essay contest explores the important and varied contributions that men make in the lives and education of children – from the children’s perspective. All men involved in a child’s life – fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, step-fathers, mentors, neighbors, pastors, coaches, and friends – impact the children they care about. Research clearly shows that male involvement positively influences academic success at all levels of schooling – preschool through college. When male figures are involved with students’ schooling, they enjoy school more and perform better in and out of school. The application deadline is March 1st each year.
