There is always something to be grateful for, whether it’s the roof over our heads or kindness from a stranger. The annual #JEIEssayContest explores how important it is to feel appreciation, even for the little things and even during the hardest times.
This submission-based contest challenges our students to relay their thanks in an original and thoughtful way. This is their chance to test out not only their reading and writing skills but also their ability to express themselves clearly and effectively.
