Choosing the competition winner this week was very difficult - but we very much enjoyed listening to some of the songs you recommended. After a lot of discussions, we finally decided the winners should be...
diplomatic_ocean of Bomas Academy in Nigeria, who made a great comparison between ABBA’s song “I have a dream” and a famous speech by civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.
smart_tree of Cowes Enterprise College B in the United Kingdom, who shared the “simple but effective” advice in the song “Favourite things” from the film The Sound of Music.
