One of the key factors for effective communication includes effective writing skills.
When children learn how to write, a whole world of possibilities opens up for them. They can put their thoughts down in a letter, write a journal, create a story that comes from their imagination, and develop a story into a do-not-put-me-down kind of a book. Writeathon aims to help students practice the art of writing, so that it will help them in their personal and professional growth. Learning and practicing writing will also help students so that they can be better prepared for competitive exams such as SAT and ACT that provide a lot of emphasis on writing skills.
Additionally, the ability to write well is a great asset in any career and in life. It is important to learn how to communicate clearly, concisely, and effectively. WishWin's Writeathon is a platform to help students start the process of writing early and continue practicing effective writing.
Writeathon consists of 3 levels
Students should bring pencils, pens, and erasers to be able to write.
