On Thursday the 15th of December at 11am, Victoria Australia time the announcements were made for the 2011 Edublog awards.
When the announcements were made it was snack time at school but most of the class decided to stay inside and listen the awards being announced. Everyone was very excited to see who the winners would be, as Mrs Morris, Miss Jordan, our class blog, many students from 2KM and 2KJ, including mine and our special project blog Our World, Our Stories had all been shortlisted.
Then it was time to announce the Best Student Blog, our class had 5 students shortlisted, including me and also BB from our school was in the running too. When I saw the final 5 I was surprised to see my name, I had all my body crossed but Jaden who was from Mrs Yollis’class last year won. I got to do a thank you speech to everyone who was listening to the awards I was very nervous, but also proud to have been a finalist.
I received 147 votes but Jaden got 610 which is totally amazing. I was the youngest blogger to make it into the top 5. The first 3 finalist all came from America and then both Gemma and I came from different schools but the same town Geelong which I thought was pretty cool since it is a world wide event.
For the best group blog, our special project that our class has been working on with 5 other classes Our World, Our Stories came 1st, the whole class was so excited and began to cheer and clap.
It was a very special day that I will always remember and I am rapt to be able to say I am the 4th best student blogger in the world!!
Have you ever won or became a finalist in anything?
If so what was it?
