WSPTA Essay Contest

This statewide essay contest explores the important and varied influencers in the lives and education of children – from the children’s perspective.

Every day children are exposed to a variety of people and each one has an opportunity to influence the path a child decides to take. Whether it is someone that sparks an interest in a new topic, helps them work through a problem, shapes the kind of person they want to become by modeling behavior, simply listens to them, or any number of other actions, this is the platform for students to share their appreciation.

The application deadline is February 15th, 2024.

The student must personally know the influencer that they are writing about.

The 2022-2023 Essay Contest winners are located on the Student Showcase page.


Kids Coming Together

Kids Coming Together helps kids in grades three through eight to develop lasting relationships through community service. Because it may be difficult for parents to get their kids to come to an event designed for them to “make friends,” Kids Coming Together focuses on relationship-building through community service projects.

Projects are intentionally scaled for small groups to increase opportunities for connection, and might include helping a neighbor in need, trail repair, visiting a senior living facility, or caring for animals at local animal rescue facilities.
