The Many Faces of Heroes Concert and Award Presentation October 17, 2020
Military, Veterans, First Responder, Essential Workers & Special Individuals
As part of our commitment to working with established visual and performing arts programs and groups in our area, we are reaching out to you to help us recognize the “Many Faces of Heroes”.
1. Write a short essay to nominate your hero. Do you have a story to share about your hero who has extraordinary achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model? This could be a family member or a person you recognize for a courageous act or service.
2. Create the image for our Concert Program Cover. (Open to middle and high school students in the Huron Valley Schools area.)
Heroes are all around us: family, friends, and mentors who are there for us. They give us wisdom; they enhance our lives, provide moral modeling, and they offer protection. They are doctors, nurses, emergency workers, first responders, and military men and women who keep us safe.
Traits of heroism are bravery, moral integrity, conviction, courageous, self-sacrifice, protecting, honest, selfless, determined, serving others, inspiring, and helpful. Heroes are those who are in the face of danger and perform great deeds or everyday selfless acts for the common good. In 2020 that definition of a hero has taken on a new look as we also recognize the essential workers, parents, and teachers who have taken on new and inventive roles.
The Essay and Cover Design projects could be introduced by teachers as part of the classroom format or encouraged as extra credit. Students can start now, complete over summer, and submit when school reopens in the Fall.
