It’s hard to believe that the holidays are quickly approaching and it’s time once again for the Senator Jack Martins Thanksgiving Essay Contest. The contest is open to all sixth grade students who are asked to write an essay, “What Are You Most Thankful For?”
Senator Martins started the contest last year and it was a big success as the sixth grade students who participated did an incredible job of putting Thanksgiving into perspective.
