Congratulations to all the winners. But i personally feel that it is not fair that for 3 consecutive years the same child gets the Young Reporter award. A lot of kids put in a lot of effort to write articles and get recognized. When the same child is given the prize every year it demotivates all the others. Kindly consider this point for next year and you will see a lot more budding writers interested to write articles.
