Sitara’s Story’s #dearmum campaign – Essay Writing Contest

Essay Writing Contest

What is Sitara’s Story’s #dearmum campaign?

It is an essay writing competition where everyone is invited to explore their own mental wellbeing. Entrants are asked to write a letter to their mother (or other important family figure) on any topic they choose. The letter could be introducing something they wish they could discuss with their mother/significant other face to face, it might be about feelings (good and bad) or it might be acknowledging Mum’s/other significant other’s support. Sharing stories with mother or other family member/s aligns with this year’s Mental Health Month theme of “Stronger Together”.

Let’s find the writer within you

SiTara’s Story presents a writing contest that offers great prizes. To win the contest, all you need to do is donate $5 to our account, and write up the best essay/story/letter you can. Be original, argue your case thoughtfully, and bring out some new and interesting points, and you can be in with a chance of winning.
