Creative Writing Competition for kids ( ages 8 to 15 years)

Hello everyone!

When you were in school did you ever have to "Write a letter to your friend describing your summer vacations" or how about about "Write a letter to your friend stating the importance of play and hard work". I used to cringe when I had to come up with these and feel mildly nauseous when after all these years my son has to write on the same topics.

If you think your child has a way with words and would enjoy thinking and writing out of the box, the CREATIVE WRITING COMPETITION at Gulmohar Days is the place to be!

Date: November 2nd, 2010
Time: 10.00 am to 1.00 pm

So kids, what are you waiting for? Buy yourself some colourful Dandiya sticks and and get ready for a fun session this Thursday!

Please note event details:

Event: Dandiya Beats
