The Trenton Thunder baseball team and the 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 he or she writes about, and a total of eight family members and friends will be guests of NJEA and the Trenton Thunder at the Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, Thunder home game (NJEA Back-to-School game).

Each winning student, and the school employee he or she writes about, will participate in pregame 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/guardian’s name and phone number, school name and address, teacher’s name, and grade level.
