Do You Know a 5th Grader?

Millions of children are back in school, and American Mothers is announcing the start of the 2015 National Fifth Grade Essay Contest.  American Mothers is a national non-profit organization that champions women by honoring mothers at home, at work, and in the world.

A handwritten essay of 150 words on “What My Mother Means to Me”  encourages students from around the country to celebrate their mothers and the important role moms play in their lives. The contest is open to all fifth graders (or equivalent education level), and students may enter their state competition individually or as a class project.

Entries are being accepted now through January 15, 2015 when each state selects their essay to be entered in the national competition.  Monetary prizes, and an invitation to the AMI National Convention to accept their award, will be given to the top three essay winners.

Winning State Essays will be announced on February 15 and winning National Essays on March 15.  Parents or teachers who would like their fifth grader’s class to participate are asked to contact  or visit the website for complete rules and information

“Children express their creativity through this contest and reflect on their mom at an age when they may forget the impact she has on their lives everyday,” says Joan Braitsch, American Mothers Inc. National President. “Everyone at American Mothers looks forward to this contest because of the love which pours out from children for their parents.  Simple things in life really impact children in amazing ways.”
