"What My Father Means to Me"

Father of the Year Essay Contest

 

The Father of the Year Essay Contest was created by the National Center for Fathering in 1992 in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of fathering. For the past two decades, the Essay Contest has given a voice to over 1,000,000 school-aged children, allowing them the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings on the topic, “What My Father Means to Me.” Their words speak loudly to the important role fathers and father figures play in the lives of children.

The Contest is made possible through the collaborative efforts of corporations, local businesses and volunteers committed to inspiring and equipping men to be the involved fathers, grandfathers, and father figures their children need.
