We know that our mums are extra special and just how much they mean to us, but how often do we tell them how much we love them and appreciate all that they do for us?
Thanks to Puck, our competition sponsor, the children of Oman were able to do just that to celebrate Mother’s Day in Oman, which was marked on Tuesday (March 21).
And this week, we can reveal the winners of our competition. Y Magazine was inundated with entries and it was a very difficult choice for our judges. From beautifully decorated cards to heartfelt poems, we have learned that mothers in Oman are truly celebrated, loved and appreciated!
“Congratulations to the winners of our Mother’s Day competition,” says Felicity Glover, Y’s managing editor. “And I’d like to also thank Puck, our sponsor, for making this competition possible for children to pay tribute to their mums.
“It’s a very special time of the year, but I also think that we should be celebrating our mums – and dads – every day of the year! Thanks so much to everybody who entered and I am sorry that there can only be three winners!”
Thanks to Puck, we had some great prizes on offer with cash and goodie bags for the top three cards, including RO200 cash for first prize, RO100 for second prize and RO50 for third prize. The winning entries have also been framed to give to the participants to present to their mums as a keepsake at a special ceremony to honour them later today (Thursday, March 23).
