Dr. Mary Carlson, a Podiatrist in Williston Park, believes that many good deeds done each day are going unrewarded and that rewarding a job will done will prompt more good activities. Her Good Deed Contest was born from this idea.
Through May 11, Long Island kids 18 years of age and under can join the Good Deed Contest by submitting an essay online about a good deed they have accomplished. Whether helping a senior citizen cross the street or helping someone with their groceris or organizing a fundraiser at school to help other children in the community, Dr. Carlson wants to hear your good deed story. The writer of the best essay will win a brand new Apple iPod.
Carlson believes there is no greater joy for a parent than knowing that their children are on the right path. The contest rewards Good Deeds done by children and teenagers to encourage them to make the right choices in life.
Good luck to all who enter!
