Dear Povi family, are you enjoying all the conversations you are having with your kids? Would you care to share with us so that we could be part of your circle? Parents and kids in our community of users are curious what other kids are saying after being asked one of Povi's questions.
What would your kid answer if you were to ask him "What is your favorite thing about your best friend?" "If babies could talk, what do you think they would say?" "If you had wings what would you do?" Have you ever asked them these questions? What do you think their answers will be? Aren't you curious? These are some example questions from Povi Family Connect app. Like to try these questions with your kids today? Download for free.
We are launching a contest to show off all the beautiful, intriguing and thought-provoking answers that POVI users are registering on our app, daily. Parents are sometimes surprised by how smart and cute some of the answers they got are. Seow Lim, CEO and founder of POVI, explains: "It's a real treat. Some questions go straight to the point and essence of revealing exactly what is making my kid happy or upset, and the way he shares that is amazing", she tells. You can read one of her stories on this post.
The contest entries are open from September 23rd 2015 8 PM (PST) to October 24th 2015. All you have to do is download the app (if you already didn't do so), fill up this form on our website and select 5 of the most interesting answers they delivered. You may choose answers from any category from the app and choose the answers that somehow touched your heart and certainly picked your brains. The contest is divided in three age groups: 5-8 years old, 9-12 and 13-18 years old. The submissions can be a short paragraph between 50 to 100 words per day for 5 days. All submission done via the app with a contest submission form filled in via a website page. The inputs don't have to be consecutive but have to be done within 1 month. We will pick winner based on best 5 answers combined. Child's ID is optional, and you might register them with their initials.
Our POVI Content Lab, composed by communication, marketing and psychology specialists will help to pick the winners according to the following criteria: creativity, originality, spontaneity, depth and surprise. As Lim explains, the idea is to show the diversity of children's minds: ""Our app has been downloaded in over 20 countries globally. It would be so valuable to have an opportunity for the kids around the world to be able to share ideas and thoughts. We love to be able to grow this diverse global community by continuing to encourage daily conversation between parents and children through fun questions". Winners will be announced on the POVI website October 30th, at 10 AM. The prizes are Amazon Gift cards on the value of $25, $15, $10 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each age group. Winners will be invited to share their selected thoughts on our website.
So what are you waiting for? We can't wait to hear from you and we will be delighted to receive your entries (maximum of one per registered email user). As some of us were surprised by the revelation of some of our kid's answers, we hope that you will have fun selecting and collecting your children's jewels. Happy sharing, and good luck!
