The Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club is sponsoring a writing contest to honor teachers for National Teacher Appreciation Day on May 5, 2015. This contest is open to all students in the Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School, Hudson Public School District, Immaculate Conception Schools, 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 3-4 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 April 1, 2015. The winning teacher and student from each school district will be invited to the MJWC business meeting on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 to receive an award. Download the entry form and rules below:
