Secondary Level Student Essay Sponsored by National Geographic Learning
Dear National Geographic Learning, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to participate in a contest like this and sponsoring the award. I am truly grateful that the efforts I made led me to this success, and I could win this award. Without your support, I could not be this successful. I had never won an essay contest in English before, so I wasn’t expecting to win this one as well. When I got a call that said that I won this award, I was so happy, but I also doubted it and thought it was a test at first because I did not expect this to happen at all. Then when I got the certificate, I felt a sense of accomplishment! That made me increase my confidence in English and want to improve my English skills more. Again, thank you for sponsoring this award. - Yu Harishima (Winner of the Secondary Level Student Essay Contest)
