Teacher Info

Have fun encouraging students to become powerful writers by using metaphors and similes! The contest fulfills Common Core Standards of figurative language. It enhances concise creative writing skills and also expresses gratitude to the special person who helps us become who we are – our moms.

We award genuine diamonds, amethysts and garnets to thousands of students for their creative writings.

Winning students come with their families for an unforgettable experience when they recite their writings and place their winning prizes into their mother’s hand.

No purchase is necessary. Prizes are genuine gemstones and do not include mountings. Mountings are offered for parents who wish to set their gemstones.

Positive words encourage and inspire us, and the contest is based on the everlasting benefits of these words. That is why it is a requirement for every winner to recite their words to their moms.

Make sure you are on our contact list for the 2025 contest.

To every teacher, thank you for helping your students sharpen their writing skills while showing appreciation for their mothers.  We are so grateful for valuable teachers like you.

First-time teachers.

If you are a first-time teacher, we hope all your students enjoyed the writing challenge.  Although not every student is selected to win a gemstone, please tell them we consider them ALL winners for taking the time for writing about their mothers.

If you have any questions how to direct winners and their families to our store, please let us know.  You are certainly invited to come if you wish.  We would love to meet you and you can see how the winners recite their words to their moms and receive their prizes.
