How To Enter The Nations Warmest Appreciation competition

We all know just how hard this first half of the year has been for just about all of us. And so, to show appreciation to those unsung heroes that have come into the forefront during lockdown, heating systems supplier, Viessmann, have launched a competition to recognise their above and beyond efforts.

It's a case of wanting to highlight all the good that people have done over these difficult times, with 3 prizes worth up to £300 each on offer if you want to get your children involved.

For this crafty competition, children aged between 5 and 14, can nominate someone that they feel has gone above and beyond to help themselves or others during this time with a creative piece and a description of why. For more details on how to enter, visit the warmest appreciation competition page on the Viessmann website. 

Now being creative is what kids love to do, and this is so much open to interpretation. Perhaps your little one loves a bit of painting or wants to doodle their creation, drawing the person they're nominating. It could be a short story, a poem of even an artistic piece. Heck, they can even bake a interpretive cake, if that's how they want to show their appreciation. 

All that matters is that it's from the heart, and shows just why this person has been nominated, and why they should win. 

For my eldest son, if he had to choose someone to nominate, he said it would be his school caretaker who always goes above and beyond his job title. From driving the school bus around each and every day to delivery lunch packages to children who are at home during the pandemic. Right up to hand drawing the school logo, and children's names, on 32 white t-shirts so my son, and his class mates, could all have their own memento to take away with them as they finished year 6 and left the school for the last time.  

And what's more, there's up to £300 to be won for each entrant!

That’s £100 each in Love2Shop vouchers for the nominator and nominee, with the additional £100 going to a charity of the winner's choice. So your child could not only make someones day by nominating them, but could also win a prize for a great charity of their choosing.

So, what are you waiting for? Ask you children who they think should win, and then get their thinking caps on to decide just how to show their appreciation...
