Thanksgiving Essay Contest

2014感恩节征文比赛文集

        Thanksgiving Day: one of the most important American holidays is coming up soon. But in the melting pot of America, many families celebrate Thanksgiving in many different ways. Each one of us, regardless of being a local student or an international student, have our own things to appreciate and be grateful for. We are thankful for parents who may have moved here from a different country, thankful for the diversity of our friends and family, thankful for our unique background or culture that allows us to see life through a special lens. There is always something unique about our ethnic or cultural background that once changed us and moved us deeply. What is it? Who is it? It is always time for us to say “Thank you,” and we should especially give our best wishes during this time of the year.

        In this essay contest, you can write about anything related to the topic–cultural appreciation. You may talk about a special person, a specific experience, or your opinion of Thanksgiving Day. We would love to hear from you and read your unique story.
