Beginning Monday, Mar. 21 and continuing through Sunday, May 1, The Salsa Grill is asking writers ages 7 through 13 to submit an essay up to 250 words answering the question: “Why is your mom the best?” The younger participants are encouraged to include an illustration with their essay.
The grand prize winner of The Salsa Grill’s 4th-Annual Mother’s Day essay writing contest will receive a Massage Envy gift card to give their mom on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8.
In addition, The Salsa Grill will provide the winners with a restaurant gift card and special treat bag for mom.
Winners in two age categories – ages 7 through 10 and 11 through 13 – will be announced on Wednesday, May 4, with enough time to coordinate pick up ahead of the holiday.
With its focus on education, the Salsa Grill’s Mother’s Day essay writing contest is a recipe for success. The Salsa Grill partners with local private and public schools all year to involve students in other programs and events, including The El Rancho High School Mentor/Mentee program, where Chef Marco Zapien speaks semi-annually to aspiring chefs.
The goal of the essay contest is to involve the local youth and help them forge a path to success.
Good luck to all the participants!
