We appreciate that parents, friends and families want to do more to showcase the talent and help the child to win this International Award. To achieve this, we will be giving 10 points to a child. So, it’s important that you all keep sharing the child top photos and videos with your friends and families on social media, e.g. Facebook, YouTube and on Instagram. You can hash tag that photo or video as #CHILDFULLNAME #IETSEASON2 #FUNKIDSINDIA #INDIASEMERGINGTALENT

Hence, the final score will include these points. More you campaign, more score the child will get. This will be calculated in a percentile. The Top SELF CAMPAIGN will have 10 points and rest will have a percentile of that.

For example, when we search with a Child Name using hash tag, we will look on the numbers of post tags, shares, comments etc. on the photo and video of the child. One child has done 100 posts share, got 1000 likes on those posts and he has done the maximum self-campaign as per the research, then this child will get full 10 points. Rest children will get percentile points.

So it’s good to keep sharing the posts and use correct hash tags. This will increase the chances of your child to get bonus points.
