WINNERS of the My Mom’s Story 2012 received attractive prizes during the awarding ceremony held at McDonald’s-Middle Road on Friday afternoon.
Marianas Variety president Laila Y. Boyer handed out the prizes and congratulated the six winners from different junior high and high schools on Saipan for coming up with special stories about their mothers.
Variety received numerous entries from students on Saipan, Tinian and Rota and awarded the six best stories.
The winners were  16-year-old Donald Hocket of Saipan Southern High School; Jose Castro, 7th grader of Marianas Baptist Academy; Kassandra Snodgrass, 12th grader, Kagman High School; Fritz Julian Trinidad, 7th grader, Marianas Baptist Academy; Justina Lee, 8th grader, Marianas Baptist Academy; and Alina Ishikawa,  10th grader, Marianas Baptist Academy.
The winners wrote about their “super-moms.”
For the past years, Marianas Variety has been honoring mothers by inviting junior high and high school students to write stories about them.
The annual contest gives the children a chance to get to know their mothers more, appreciate what mothers do for the family, and develop their creative talents and writing skills too.
