2013 Thanks-Giving Expressions Essay Competition

2013 Thanks-Giving Expressions Essay CompetitionThe Thanks-Giving Foundation’s 9th annual Expressions Art and Essay Competition is under way.

The Expressions Competition highlights education and the arts by inviting teachers and students from kindergarten through 12th grade to participate. It is a terrific teaching opportunity about thanksgiving and gratitude that is designed to inspire students to think creatively and express cultural and personal perspectives on gratitude through essays and art. The 2013 theme, I am grateful for the values of sports, encourages students to express the benefits of sports, such as teamwork, exercise, leadership, friendship, sportsmanship and cooperation.
