Today is a proud and a happy moment for me, as the founder of this blog but more importantly as a mother. Few days back one of my dearest online friend ;(yes, I haven’t met her yet), but some relations are beyond meeting someone in person and Anupama Dalmia is one such friend, informed me about a Teacher’s Day contest that she had planned on her website for children. She wanted my site’s youngest contributor- my daughter, to participate too as she had read the stories written by her on this site.

Stories On Honesty By A 8 Year Old

My daughter was very excited to participate and started working on it immediately. I was amazed at her enthusiasm and determination to give her best.

The results of the competition were announced today and she bagged the first prize for her essay ‘An Ode To My Favourite Teacher’. I was told by Anupama that the judges had a tough time to decide on the winners and the top prize has been shared by Mishti and Shreyas Saboo. They scored the exact same points. This goes on to show the bundle of talent that these young minds are and how a little bit of encouragement can make them shine.

An Ode To My Favourite Teacher

Kids never cease to amaze me! I read all the essays across all age categories and I was highly impressed. I want the readers of my blog to also read all these essays. So do visit the link below:

Teachers Day Contest Essays

Do share your thoughts on the same and feel free to share stories written by your kids too. I will be more than happy to publish it on my site. Reading the essays has inspired me to start a children’s corner category on my blog.

I am linking this post to #MondayMusings as it’s a very happy moment for me and I would like to share this moment with my blogger friends.
