Speech Competion By Maria
When I won the speech competition I was amazed. It had been through a really hard term of research, sorting and writing as well as re-writing. Many students tried as hard as I did to even get to the semi-finals. The judges at the semi-finals were intense but fair. They had a hard job judging because all the semi-finalists were amazing. Then they called the finalists a few names had been called out, I hadn't yet heard my name. Then I heard it - I was speechless. I never thought I would get this far. Then a few days later was the finals. I sat waiting nervously in my chair while the students, teachers and parents piled into the hall. As the hall filled I knew I had to try my hardest. The juniors started their poems. Then it was time for the seniors. Some kids got called then it was my turn. I did my speech with breeze, my heart pounding inside of me. I finished and sat down. Mr Johnston called out the winners of the Juniors then the Seniors. I won first in my year group and I won first out of the whole school. I couldn't believe it - I won! Me the new girl! That is how I felt when I won the speech competition.
