Thank you for sharing your nominations for the STUDENT SKILLS CHAMPION award. We chose the winners based on how well they explained their reasons for nominating someone.
This does not mean that the person they nominated will definitely win the award - so make sure you keep an eye out for our awards ceremony on July 1st to find out who has won!
Our competition winners this time are:
loved_planet of Cheam Fields Primary Academy, who made sure to use examples that prove their nominee often showcases superb speaking skills
observant_pineapple of Harris Academy Wimbledon, who described their nominee's Final Piece in lots of detail to praise their creativity.
Thanks for your help everyone!
Every year the Burnet News Club hold an awards ceremony to celebrate all of the hard work you and your teachers have put into your learning. This year we want to introduce a new award... and we need your help!
Your challenge this week is to nominate another student to win the STUDENT SKILLS CHAMPION award.
To do this, you should have a good look around at past Issues from this year on the Hub and choose ONE student FROM A DIFFERENT SCHOOL TO YOURS who you think has shown good speaking, listening, problem-solving or creativity.
Leave a comment with their Hub name, which skill you are nominating them for and, most importantly, WHY they deserve the award.
Use this sentence structure to help:
I nominate... (insert Hub name here)
to get an award for showing great speaking/listening/problem-solving/creativity.
I have chosen them because... (insert reason why you think they are great at the skill here).
For example you could say:
I nominate happy_grapefruit to get an award for their amazing problem-solving. I have chosen them because they made a great post suggesting some ways the world could slow climate change and they made sure to back-up their ideas with reasons and examples.
To win the competition this week you must include all of the information we have asked for and showcase some fantastic explanations and examples in your nomination!
The deadline for entries is Friday June 11th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck! We will announce the winners of the STUDENT SKILLS CHAMPION award at our awards ceremony on July 1st.
