Word pairs Tri-series ONO challenge - 1In May we had a summer camp activity in which you submitted a writeup that started and ended with a word pair. That was a trial run; now comes the real challenge! This will be a Tri-series, that is, consisting of three challenges, each announced at any time and open for entries for six days. Each challenge will have a theme (O.N.O.), with the rules the same across all three. Points will be awarded to your entry in each and tallied at the end of the Tri-series. There will be prizes for the highest tally of points and in order to win those prizes, you must participate in all three challenges.
Series 1 Theme: Objects
What you have to do: In a response to this thread, submit a write-up with word pairs that are objects. Both the two words in the pair should be inanimate objects and should be ones that are used inside the home or office. By objects is meant general things, so it need not literally be something like a lock and key but could be something related to food, such as apples and oranges. However, they should make sense and must be relevant as a pair. Things like weapons, medicinal drugs, and garments will not be allowed. The decision of the jury panel on the validity of the pairs will be final.
1. You can submit only one entry. The entry should not be a story or poem, but a general writeup in English.
2. The writeup should begin with the word pair and end with the same word pair in the reverse order (e.g. if it is lock & key, it should end with key & lock). It should be grammatically correct at the beginning and at the end, and there should be no words before the word pair that is placed at the beginning, and no words after the word pair that appears at the end. Please refer to the link given above to see the valid writeups that were submitted in the trial run. You can use the word pair in the plural (e.g. locks and keys), but then it should also end in the same way (keys and locks, and not key and lock).
3. The write-up should not exceed 12 sentences. Do not needlessly extend a sentence with punctuation or 'and', 'but', and the like. You may edit your entry at any time before closing time to correct mistakes, but do not change the word pair selected and should retain the general core of the writeup.
Last date to submit entries for Series 1: 7th July 2021. There will be no extensions, so do not wait till the last minute to submit your entry. Think out of the box!
If you require any clarifications, you can submit your queries in a response to this thread only.
