• In 1993, Diamond Mike Watson founded a writing contest in honor of his adoptive mother and the birthmother he had never known. The most creative contestant would receive a diamond. A girl named Margaret claimed her grand prize diamond. Like buried treasure, her enchanting poem sparkled deep within the mound of entries.

    Since then, hundreds of thousands of kids have submitted words of love to the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® contest. The contest is now in honor of all moms, and this book is the story of how the largest mother’s appreciation contest in the nation was created.

    Included is a time-line of photographs, word charts, and the history of the contest.  Learn about the culture of enhancing creative writing skills while preparing kids for a lifetime of success.

    The book also shows the evolution of the FlyUp program, in which Diamond Mike has lectured to thousands of school kids about achieving their dreams.

    A great keepsake for adults, teachers, children, and every parent of a Why Mom Deserves a Diamond gemstone winner.
