#9 - Time-Travel Challenge - Winners Announced!

08 November 2019

Speaking Up for competitions

What a range of inspiration quotes this week! It's been a pleasure to read them and incredibly hard to pick a winner.

Stars have been awarded for original, thoughtful words and with a reason to back them up.

Our Primary winner this week is cheerful_photograph of The Sherwood School, who gave a bold quote that combined both celebration of achievement, and an instruction for the future.

Our Secondary winner is warm_guava of Faringdon who gave a simple but hugely effective quote that reflected the excitement of the world at the time.

Well done to both of you!

50 years ago, Neil Armstrong became the first person to step onto the surface of the moon. On July 20 1969, over 600 million people around the world huddled around television sets for what was, and still is, one of the biggest moments ever recorded.

Armstrong's famous first words on the surface of the moon were "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

This week's challenge is to time-travel 50 years and imagine you are in Neil Armstrong's shoes as you are descending down the steps of Apollo 11.

Knowing that this will go down in history, with hundreds of millions watching now, and billions of people learning about this in future...

What would your first words on the moon have been and why?

This might be a phrase to represent your achievement, or the progress of the human race, or something to inspire people to follow in your footsteps. Or something else entirely! We can't wait to hear your thoughts.

Competition closes at 10.30am on Friday 8th November. Good luck!
