With Father’s Day approaching on June 15, ChildWatch, a family advocacy group in Bermuda, is holding a letter writing contest for children to highlight the importance of fathers.  Children ages seven to eighteen are asked to explain in a letter, 500 words or less, “why your dad is a wonderful dad to you”.

There are four age categories and four winners with the child’s father winning prizes too, including: a bicycle radio, DVD player, TV, stereo and free buffets for two families of three at the Elbow Beach Hotel in Bermuda (plane tickets not included).

The letter should be titled “Letter to Dad” and at least 100 words.  Letters should be neatly handwritten or typed and emailed to childwatch.bermuda@yahoo.com or mailed to ChildWatch, suite No. 1080, #48 Par-la-Ville Road Hamilton HM 11, no later than May 30.

According to Tari Trott writing for The Royal Gazette of Bermuda, judges will be looking at the author’s ability to write articulately and passionately.  Post your letters in the Comments section below as well.
