“When I Think of My Dad…”

Shame Kills & DrugRehab.org Presents The Father’s Day 2017 Essay Contest

$200 Cash Prize Award

Moms may be the glue that keeps a family together, but Dads are the support structure. Because we think fathers deserve recognition too, and in honor of Father’s Day, DrugRehab.org and Shame Kills are partnering to sponsor the essay contest, “When I think of My Dad…” with a $200 prize for the winning essay.

We want to shine a light on all the great fathers out there, and we want to hear what makes your dad great. What do you think of when you think of your dad? Maybe he worked long hours to provide, but he was always there for you no matter what. Maybe dad helped coach soccer practice even when he barely had time, or maybe he was the one who always made you feel safest. Dads oftentimes live in the background. Is it possible you never noticed until now everything he has done?

In 250 words or less, using the starting phrase “When I think of my dad,” we want to know what your father means to you and how he has made your life better. What has he done to lift you up and keep you on the right track? How has he influenced you? How has he helped you stay on the path towards healing?
