Hey #adulted teachers and student mothers! This Mother's Day (May 11th), World Education once again wants to honor mothers' efforts to improve their own and their family’s lives through education by publishing your story. 

If you are an adult education student enrolled in basic skills, high school diploma/equivalent, ESOL, or college transition classes, we encourage you to submit your story!

Please use some of the following writing prompts to guide your writing (Teachers, find printable guidelines here: http://ow.ly/tdWpK):

• Write about yourself: Where did you grow up? How old are you? What was your education experience before enrolling in adult education classes?
• Write about your children. How have they responded to your going back to school?
• What are your hopes and dreams that caused you to go back to school? What are the steps you are taking to make them come true? Where are you studying and what?
• What sacrifices have you had to make in order to make education a priority?
• What do you enjoy about going back to school? Have you already experienced good outcomes from going back to school?
• What else would you like others to know about you as a mother getting her education?

Suggested length is 300-500 words. Published stories will be edited in consultation with the writer. 10-12 stories will be published online by World Education. A $50 stipend will be paid to each adult education student whose work is accepted for publication. All writings will be considered. The selection will be made by World Education in early April.

All writings must be received by Friday, March 7th, 2014. Email the material to: mothersday@worlded.org and include your name, address, email, phone number, and contact information for your adult education program. We will require a digital photo of yourself (with or without your children) for all published writings.
