Honoring Our Heroes (HOH) is a student writing program that was developed in 1995 by the ECCC of PTAs.  The program was designed for students to write about their real-life heroes and role models.  We want students to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars, and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on their life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.

Below are links to all the resources you need for your school to have a successful HOH program.
