For many years now, the Give Us An "A" program has provided an incentive for children of cooperative member-owners to earn better grades in school. In 2020 we revised the program and gave it a new "twist". Parents can now nominate their student for performing well in school, at home and in their community. If the parent(s) feels that their student has worked hard and deserves an "A", they can nominate them by completing the form below.
So, we have given our Give Us An "A" program a little "twist" which will allow students to have a chance at being rewarded for their efforts and adds a reward for the parents/guardians too.
Here's how it works ----
Complete the entry form. To qualify, the student must be:
- the child or legal ward of an NWEC member-owner and;
- must permanently reside in a home serviced by NWEC and;
- at least 5 years old (enrolled in kindergarten) and no older than 21 years old (enrolled in college or technical school). Students can also be homeschooled.
Here's THE TWIST ----
Getting an "A" is about putting forth your best effort on something and completing it until the end so tell us in 50 words or less why your student deserves an "A"!
It can be a school-related situation such as completing all their required work on time, doing a particular assignment with no errors, etc. or it can be a non-school-related situation such as a kind act towards a sibling, learning a new task/hobby or something similar. As long as you feel your student put forth their best effort and completed the task, it will qualify.
You can even attach a photo of your student working on their task or of the finished project. We would love to see them!
Entry deadlines are January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1.
Four students will be chosen each quarter to receive a $25 check plus the winning parents will also receive a special prize. The winning entries will be featured in a future issue of the Ohio Cooperative Living magazine, on our Facebook page and on this website.
So, come on parents, let's give your student an "A"!
