Judging Criterion:

            The judging team comprised of usually three judges from different parts of the USA. We try to be fair and unbiased in choosing the judges. If you would like to help as a judge in further contests then please contact editor at balagokulam dot org. The judging criterion for different categories and age group varies accordingly. Usually we focus on theme, originality, content presentation, and suitability towards the objectives of the Balagokulam Magazine in general. Usually we also try to select contents that carry positive messages. However content that does not fit to the above description is also reviewed, given a careful consideration on a case by case basis before taking a final decision.

            Some of the contest entries that were submitted after the due date have not been considered for the judging. Unless stated otherwise we would consider these entries in appropriate categories for the next competitions.


            We give medals and certificates to all 1st and 2nd prize winners. Occasionally, we also give special certificates for some of the other entries as well. We are trying to be innovative in prizes for future contests.

What if I have some content not related to the contests?

            If you and especially a child has written or drawn a special content not related to the contest categories, we encourage you to send it to us at editor at balagokulam dot org, better you can upload it via web at Contest Upload page . However we are not able to guarantee that such content would be published in the Balagokulam magazine. Please make sure that the content is original in presentation and you have not submitted it anywhere else for publication.
