In 1993, Diamond Mike Watson founded a writing contest in honor of his adoptive mother and the birthmother he had never known. The most creative contestant would receive a diamond. A girl named Margaret claimed her grand prize diamond. Like buried treasure, her enchanting poem sparkled deep within the mound of entries.

Since then, hundreds of thousands of kids have submitted words of love to the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® contest. The contest is now in honor of all moms, and this book is the story of how the largest mother's appreciation contest in the nation was created.

Included is a time-line of photographs, word charts, and the history of the contest narrated by Diamond Mike. Learn about the culture of enhancing creative writing skills while preparing kids for a lifetime of success.

The book also shows the evolution of the FlyUp! program, in which Diamond Mike has lectured to thousands of schoolkids about achieving their dreams.

Positive words encourage and inspire us, and the contest is based on their everlasting power.

For adults, teachers, children, and for every parent of a gemstone winner.
