Getting the award of the Jack Petchey is such an honour at a young age. I wrote six poems and I got £250 which went towards my school. When I was told, I won the award I was shocked because I didn’t think I would win or even be close to winning something as big as this. Since I have had won the Jack Petchey award it has boosted my confidence because I have been reading and sharing poems and reading to my year and the whole school. The Jack Petchey is for young achievers which means anyone could do something creative and unique and become part of the Petchey foundation.
If you believe you can do it, DON’T GIVE UP!!
