The contest fulfills the Common Core Standards of figurative language, enhances 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 2022 contest.
