CMS student wins grandparent essay contest

Campbellsville Middle School fifth-grader Tashaun Hart recently won a grandparent essay contest.

 

The contest is sponsored by the local Kentucky Retired Teachers Association chapter and the AARP.

 

Students are challenged to think and write about their relationships with their grandparents.

 

Hart was chosen as the contest winner for CMS. He wrote about his grandfather, Tony Smith.

 

All fifth-grade students at CMS submitted entries in Kaye Breeding’s reading/language arts class.

 

Hart received a $25 prize for his winning entry.

 

He was honored on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the local Kentucky Retired Teachers Association chapter meeting.

 

Hart is the son of Tiffany Smith and Christopher Hart.

 

His essay follows:

 

My papaw should be the AARP grandparent of the year because he takes care of my family. He makes the best cookies ever. He can fix anything of mine. We do tons of stuff together. These are the reasons that my papaw is the best.

 

The first reason my papaw should be the AARP grandparent of the year is because he loves everybody in my family, even my dog, I mean he takes care of my dog. He feeds him, and waters him, and when my dog does a trick, he gives him a treat. Max is a great watchdog who loves papaw just as much as me. Max protects papaw like papaw protects me.

 

The second reason my papaw should be the AARP grandparent of the year is because he makes the best cookies. When I walk through the door, I can smell them. They taste like heaven in your mouth! After he wins this award, I will have him bake you some.

 

The third reason my papaw should be the AARP grandparent of the year is because he fixes everything of mine. For example, he put my chain back on my bike when it came off. He sews up my pajamas when they tear up. Also, he fixes my four wheeler for me when it won’t start. My papaw is the best at fixing things.

 

The fourth reason my papaw should be the AARP grandparent of the year is because he enjoys spending time with me. We watch Sunday football together. He lets me help him fix his truck. He plays baseball with my out in the back yard. He also comes and watches me play all my sports. Las year, he took me to Florida and it was my first time on an airplane.

 

As you can see, my grandfather, Tony Smith, should be the AARP grandparent of the year. Even if he doesn’t win this award, he still is a winner in my eyes. It doesn’t get any better than my papaw. Hopefully, you feel the same way after reading my essay and considering my grandfather the grandparent of the year.
