The Trenton Thunder baseball team and NJEA are once again sponsoring a student essay contest open to all New Jersey public school students.

The topic of the contest is “My Hero Works at School.” Students are encouraged to write a short, thoughtful essay about a school employee who has had a positive impact on them. Essays should be no more than 250 words.

Three winners will be selected. Each winning student, the school employee they write about, and a total of eight of their family members and friends will be guests of NJEA and the Trenton Thunder at the NJEA Back-to-School game on Aug. 1. The Thunder will be squaring off against the Altoona Curves.

Each winning student and the school employee they write about will participate in pre-game ceremonies and receive commemorative certificates. (Participants should be available to attend the game—no substitute dates are available.)

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