Frequently Asked Questions

How are Winners Picked?
Gemstone winners are selected by Contest Panel Judges (teachers from Orange County, California) who search for creativity, sincerity, and originality.

Why Didn't I Win?
Not every participant is selected for a gemstone prize. But we still consider you a winner for taking the time to compose words of love! You now have a beautiful poem that you may read to your mother right now. (It is important to read these words to your mom, for it is your thoughts and feelings that are more valuable than any gem.)

How Do I Write a Winning Entry?
It is important to grab the attention of these Contest Panel Judges immediately. Try trimming out non-important words and replacing them with strong, colorful words. Also, try to quickly get to the heart of your entry by omitting "My mom deserves a diamond because..." or, "...and that's why she deserves a diamond." Also, we know that your mom is the best in the world. we prefer you to tell us, in short, descriptive words, why she is the best.

Can I Enter Again Next Year?
Yes. If you weren't selected as a gemstone winner this year, you are welcome to enter again next year. Be prepared for our telephone call. You might even be the Diamond Winner!
