Parents, Educators/Teachers & Students in Action


Be a Hero in the Fight Against Intolerance!

And win the grand prize – Four Disneyland tickets that you and your family can use when the pandemic is over!

We’re all dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives. We are all facing challenges we’ve never faced before. At PESA, we think it is crucial that we all face these challenges together rather than let them drive us apart.

That is why we have created the County of Heroes Contest - to help us understand that even though we are all different, we are all the same. In this contest, you will encounter stories of other students that will inspire discussions on the value of accepting others who are different than yourself.
