Essay Contest

Ell-Saline Middle School/High School students had the opportunity to attend the movie "Wonder" on the afternoon before winter break. The movie was based on the book by the same name, by R.C. Palacio, that inspired the Choose Kind movement. All students grade 7-12 have been given the opportunity to reflect on that experience through an essay contest detailed below.

Six Class Winners Receive Movie Ticket and Snack Voucher


Each participant will write a reflection from the movie “Wonder” based on a line out of the movie.  Your essay should be no more than 300 words but long enough for you to discuss a particular line in the movie, what it meant in the movie, and what it means for you as a person.  The movie line came from the scene when the boy Jillian was being suspended from school for being mean to Auggie.  Julian’s parents were defending him and explaining to the principal how difficult it was for all of the students to be able to attend school with Auggie.  The following line came from the principal and you will write about it. 

“Auggie cannot help the way he looks, so maybe we should change the way we see.” 


The essay may be typed or hand written in black or blue ink.  The due date for the essay will be Friday, January 19th, by 4:00pm.  Essays should be turned into the office.
