This is an excerpt from a letter received from Deborah Kim, the Education Coordinator at the Boston Sports Museum:
“On behalf of the Sports Museum, I would like to congratulate your students who participated in the 2019 Will McDonough Writing Contest. This year, the Museum received over 1,100 entries. All the judges commented on how difficult it was to choose a winner.
We were excited to give students the opportunity to write about their favorite teams and athletes. Along with preserving New England’s unique sports history, The Sports Museum uses athletics to demonstrate the concepts of determination, courage, teamwork, fairness, and responsibility. Your students’ essays provided excellent examples of these character traits.”
