$3,000 for the Most Gifted Child at Dukascopy

Mar 25 2013
By
When I was younger I always found children to be entertaining, but more or less useless. Now I am older, wiser, and a parent. The way I see my interaction with children today is quite simple: shove food at one end and keep the other moderately clean. Spend months in an effort to teach them to walk and talk, then spend the next 18 to 20 years yelling at them to sit down and shut up. Can't live with them, can't live without them. 
 
Nonetheless, I am willing to accept that there is a certain attraction to parenthood, especially now that I've seen a special competition Dukascopy will be offering this year – the My Gifted Child contest. After celebrating their love for each other with Dukascopy's previous fun promo for Valentine's Day, parents are now given a chance to get at least some money back from their offspring, by winning the $3,000 prize pool the broker is giving for the best amazing-child story. 
 
The concept and participation are exceedingly simple. All you need to do is register with the Dukascopy community, log into your account and share an interesting, amazing, cute or whatever story about your child. Every three months, a prize pool of $3,000 is distributed to the top three stories: $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second and $500 for third. The first contest period is just ending on March 31, but the second round begins on April 1. It will end on June 30. Round three is from July to September, and round four is from October 1 until New Year. 
 
If your amazing child manages to win you an award, you will be able to receive it in either an existing Dukascopy live trading account, or a newly made one (you know, if you just registered to take part in the contest, like I did). In order to withdraw your prize, you need to first make a turnover of at least $2 million. You are allowed to increase your chances by submitting more than once, but your entries must be of a different sort, like a picture and a story, or video and picture. There are no restrictions on the subject of the entry, as long it is not morally offensive. You will most certainly be disqualified if your post contains any of the following topics:
 
-pornography or sexually explicit content
-racism or sexual discrimination
-hate speeches
-shocking & disgusting content
-unlawful acts
-infringements of intellectual property
-harassment
-threats
-violation of privacy
 
So, what more can we poor, tired parents ask for? If your child is anything like mine, you probably already have a ton of anecdotes to tell... and if you are anything like me, you've been saving those for when your kid introduces you to their prom date in a few years. So, why not just go and share them with Dukascopy now and make some money? Of, course, if you'd rather keep your stories to yourself, you can still go for some of the other fun contests out there and win F1 tickets from IronFX, or maybe use your demo accounts at Excel Markets and Myfxbook to make some extra petty cash. After all, diapers don't grow on trees, you know!
