We are back with yet another exciting contest for everyone!
Is your school teacher a coconut? Hard on the outside, soft on the inside?
PRESENTING #kbcReadWriteRace Contest!
ANECDOTE PROMPT – IN THE KBC FACEBOOK GROUP
Share some school related anecdotes on any one of the following topics for a chance to win READ, WRITE, RACE by Arti Sonthalia!
a) Did you or anyone you know have a reading/writing/sports or any difficulty in any of the activities at school? Were you scared of any subject? Did any teacher help you overcome that difficulty?
b) Were you or any other child teased/bullied in school and did your teacher come to the rescue? Tell us all about one such experience! (you are allowed to change names).
VERY IMPORTANT! Should you wish to celebrate a teacher who helped you in any circumstance related to the above topics, please feel free to mention their real name (with their consent of course), please ADD THEM TO THE GROUP and TAG THEM in your post so we all can salute them! It would be such a heartwarming way to remember them on Teacher’s Day!
c) Did your best friend forever ditch you for another classmate and did you ultimately make new friends?
The idea of this nostalgic prompt is to celebrate your child’s or your school memories! Each one of us has gone through some school struggle at some point of time – either with a subject/activity or with class mates. We want to celebrate the teachers who helped us overcome our fears, who patiently helped us become better students, who supported us with kindness and empathy when the rest of the class was indifferent.

- Hashtags: #kbcReadWriteRace #HappyTeachersDay2022
