Paragraph writing contest - your most beautiful childhood memoryRemember your school days when you were instructed to write an essay on a given topic? You learned, then, about sentence structure and writing content in paragraphs. So let's bring out your writing skills with a simple topic to write a single paragraph on.
The topic: What is your most beautiful childhood memory and why?
What you have to do: In a response to this thread, write a single, concise paragraph of about 100 to 225 words on the given topic. We are sure you've got plentiful lovely memories of your childhood! We'd like you to share with us, though, that one particular one that stands out above the rest, with supporting reasons.
1. A member can submit only one entry.
2. The content should be in English with adherence to our forum posting guidelines and should have no links. A few words above the suggested limit of 225 is fine, but not needlessly so, and it does not mean submitting a lengthy paragraph going way above 230 words!
3. You are welcome to edit your entry at any time before the closing time of the contest to correct typos, grammar errors, etc but do not change the core theme. For example, if you have written about going to the beach with your mother as your most beautiful childhood memory, you cannot change it later to going on a trip somewhere with your grandparents.
Some tips on how to write a paragraph - The opening sentence (this is called the topic sentence) will be the core around which the other sentences will evolve. Write it in a cohesive manner, without undue rambling and meandering away from the opening sentence, and conclude it in a manner that neatly closes the paragraph, basically summarizing what you started off with.
The reward: Rs.50/- to the best paragraphs (maximum up to three). Other entries may get enhanced points and cash credits based on quality.
Closing time: Midnight of 26th April 2021 (IST).
Note: We've seen a few members submitting their entries on the closing date of the contest, at nearly the last minute. Please ensure that you submit your entry well in advance as we often have Net connectivity, power or technical issues with online work.
