NJEA and Hot 97 are sponsoring a student essay contest open to all New Jersey public high school students. “Say It With Your Pen” is a chance to spotlight a teacher or educational support professional who has impacted your life.

Students are encouraged to write a short essay about a school employee who has had a positive influence on them. It can be a teacher, counselor, nurse, secretary, security guard, custodian, bus driver, cafeteria staff member or any other school employee who has made a difference in your life. Essays should be no more than 250 words.

Two winners will be selected. Each winning student will win two tickets to Hot 97’s Summer Jam! Hot 97’s Dr. Bob Lee will also “Crash the Classroom” with a school visit and $1,000 award to the NJEA member highlighted in the winning essay.

Entries must include the student’s name, parent’s name and phone number, school name and address, teacher’s name, and grade level.
