2015 Breaking Barriers: In Sports, In Life Essay Contest

Dear Academy Members and Friends,

Breaking Barriers: In Sports, In Life is a baseball-themed character education program developed by Major League Baseball and Scholastic Inc. Using America’s sport, baseball, as the metaphor for life, the curriculum is based on the values demonstrated by barrier breaker Jackie Robinson: Determination, Commitment, Persistence, Integrity, Justice, Courage, Teamwork, Citizenship, and Excellence.

The Breaking Barriers essay contest requires students, grades four through nine, to submit an essay about barriers or obstacles they have faced or are still facing in their lives, and how they used the values exemplified by Jackie Robinson to deal with those obstacles. Sharon Robinson, Consultant, Community Affairs and Educational Programming for Major League Baseball, and daughter of Jackie Robinson, developed and consults on the program.

Essay authors are eligible to win tickets to the 2015 All-Star Game or laptops. We would love for an Academy member to take home the gold! Please follow the links below for more information.
