WINNERS ANNOUNCED:
artistic_opinion and positive_potato

Well done to our winners, who came up with excellent sentences for this tricky competition. We liked how artistic_opinion noted the relativity of money and thought about it from both points of view. Positive_potato kept things practical and thought about value, which was another interesting interpretation. Good job!

WEEKLY COMPETITION #13

This week, our competition focuses on open-mindedness.
Your challenge is to finish this sentence:

'Money matters...'

We want you to be open-minded in what you decide, so think it through before you submit your entry. You might want to think about it from a different point of view.

Remember, you must stick to one sentence so choose your words carefully!

Winners will be announced next Friday. Good luck!

    Money matters because if you have got a loan you need to pay it off but if you don’t have any money that will be hard. This is why money matters a lot x

      Also if you had money you would probably save some so you can buy everyday things such as food however if you get a loan then you might not be able to get a job and pay it back.In my opinion the person should get a job first so they have enough money to pay it off.

    Money matters because we need money to buy things, help us to pay things off and it helps us to put a roof over heads,I also think every one should be payed £1,000 every month so most of the country’s poupulation would have a roof over there heads.

    Money matters because you need a house to make your family feel like they have love and you need money because you need to pay for food and water to live with ou them you will die or be ill and unhealthy. You also need money for your bills if you own a house, say if you borrow money from the bank they would expect you to give them it back eventually and a bit extra so it helps the bank with money and if you think about it, it helps you with your life say if you borrowed some more money it helps the bank provide you with more money if you give them some extra money back. You also need money for close.

    Money matters because without money you can’t pay for food and then you won’t have food and without food you won’t be very healthy and you could die it is very dangerous to not eat. You need to pay bills and if you don’t pay bills then the thing you have to pay for will get cut off and you will have to pay back all the money until it gets put back on. You also need money to buy medicine if you are ill if you are ill and you need medicine but don't have enough money to get it you can die because it’s dangerous and also it is very dangerous. That is why money matters.

    Some good entries so far, but I think the BNC can do better!

    How about writing an entry that doesn't use the word 'because' straight after 'money matters...'. How about trying one of these words, or one of your own:

    when
    if
    until
    however
    unless
    more

      I think that your idea was excellent because ...
      • When;
      • However;
      • If;
      • Until;
      • Unless;
      • More;
      Without using the word because I don’t see how you can’t put any of the words that the BNC has given us so for example...
      Without money you can not pay for such things as food, clothing, utilities and the luxuries of life!

    I think that money only matters if everyone uses it.
    For example, if no one uses money and does things because they want to, then it is not important
    But if everyone is obsessed with the idea of getting more money for everything they do then money will be really important
    I think only the amount of money you need is important

    money matters because if we didint have money in the world then we would not be able to do anything for example we would not be able to buy a house and live in we wouldnt be able to pay off elcetricity and we would all be homeless
    money is very important but we need to understand that the people want more money
    money doesnt really matter
    you can do things with out money like go to a park people gamble on there money to try and win more to try and winmore when they finally realise that they have no more money to buy there things which they need people can get into gambling then they cant pay for medicine
    the abuse of money can be very harmful some people can go out and spend there money then they have to borrow some of their friends when a friend cant always be there

    Money matters to most people however I think it doesn't as money divides humans into different catergories such as: high class, middle class and low class, which creates distance between every person from being in the same catergory of HUMANS.

    Money matters however, if some people have too much of it, they'll (I don't know for sure, but I feel as if they would) go into despair, as they have nothing except money, as money does not bring happiness (well, it does but only for the first short while but then that is it).

    Money matters as you need it to survive:
    One of my points are you need it to pay off bills, buy food, start businesses or charities which is important also to get basic products. My second point is that everybody needs it and it stabilize the money industry because without it there would not be banks and everything would collapse around us and nothing would be secure and there would not be direct way to get anything. My final point is that money matters because you can't have properties without which shows is it matters.

    Thank you for listening my opinion.

    If there was no money,I would have to work for ages,and not even get paid alot ,that's why it's good we have money and money matters because we couldn't live without money like how would we buy a house or food and the bank would have to get alot of gold and translate it into money that was worth like £1,000,000 so basically thats why we need money

    Money matters however it only matters in aspects of buying things or borrowing money, money can not exactly buy happiness, love etc. Although, money does have a lot of value and it is very important, it can only do so much. Money matters if you want to buy something or start a business but if you wanted happiness you could not use money to do that.

    Money matters not because it can get you things but because we can do something with it. For example: if you wanted to start a business, you could get some money to buy a building for your barber shop (an example) then if you see it’s going well, then you could risk buying the business. This could have a positive outcome but also a negative outcome. All that matters is that you can learn from that and understand. This is why money matters- it can make a difference.

    I think money matters a lot because if you are a low income person and you get out a loan because you need money ,it is going to be hard for you to pay it back because you don't have that the money to pay it back, and also if you don't pay back the loan back after a certain amount of time the loan goes up so you will have to pay more money even though you could not afford to pay the price of the original loan, this is why money matters

    money matters because:
    . You can't pay bills to sustain life in the world
    . People need to pay bills so they can pay there bills
    Money is a necessary thing in life because it is what most colleens revolve around so people need it say if some one needed to pay there bills so he\she could shelter there family how do you think it would end if they didn't have the money to pay there bills with. Another example is that people work for money it has reason because they need it.But I also think you don't need money because I know that people have different opinions about this because I've researched a couple that live in the sewers yes as unbelievable as it sounds they do and they are perfectly fine that go's to show that money int every thing but in some case scenarios it is an invalid essential so that proves my point that in each case money can be a good or bad thing. As well in my burnet news club one of the stories about a man who borrowed money when the financial crisis he had to ow back money so actually it depends on how much money you have but that is my opinion on ... does money matter

For example: Rich people- Have always had money but if they didn't have the money to do the things they used to before their lives would be different. But poor people if they didn't get their benefits they would be even more in povity than they were before.

    Also education would be cutt so then children wouldn't be able to get educated,get a job,ect. Also people with medical help wont be able to afford the correct medicine/treatment for their illness/disease so they have the chances that they might die.

    Money matters because without money, you cannot buy anything or afford shelter. As well as this, money is key to everyone's life because if money were to stop being manufactured, people would have no reason to work hard since everything would be free. Also, practically all stores and hospitals would stop business because no one would be able to pay the NHS and no one will bother buying anything any more because they would save it as it would be the only money they had left. Many more robbery would be performed as most people would be money thirsty. Linking on to the issue, if you were taking out a loan and money stopped being manufactured, you would lose almost all of your money instantly. The majority of the world would become homeless due to money loss therefore money really matters to our everyday lives.

    Money matters because by getting it, it opens up so many different opportunities. We should always be grateful for the money we have. This is why money matters.

    Money matters since it is the very system in which this world functions upon, the entirety of society all the banks, shops, even charities depend upon money - money delivers the world from mayhem; however on the other hand, is it not money that influences humanity's greatest weakness - greed - if it were not for money hundreds of wars, myriads of murders and comprehensible malignity would never had occurred, money neither matters or otherwise it simply works.

    Money matters, however, it can cause crisis' like the Bank Of England crisis that happened. It can also cause people to lose their houses if they fail to pay for the mortgage and potentially force them to be homeless or even make people gamble and have greed. In conclusion, money is what our lives depend on but then it can create chaos and conflict.

    Money matters because no matter how much you have, someone else will have less. Many people have next to no money so everyone that does have money should be grateful for what they have and not complain. Money doesn't necessarily mean everything and people without money seem to generally be happier although they don't have the medical benefits of people WITH money. Money matters however a great number of people think of money as no object to them. Money has become part of our daily life so much that nothing in life is free.

    Money matters because it allows us to buy anything and everything and it's granted by work that based on the skills we have acquired through the work we've done in school. However some people might not be lucky enough to go to school some the idea of higher education means higher paying job may seem unfair to them as they have received little or none making the system disbandment to them and so the case for money.

        You could argue that this is both a good and a bad thing - it wholly depends on who's perspective your looking at the situation from. If, for example, you are a richer or middle-class citizen, you would be quite content with how things are. This is because you are well-off and on the whole have everything you need in life. On the other hand, if you are looking at from a poorer person's perspective, then it's a bad thing because they might be unable to do anything to help themselves.

    Money matters because you use money gets you everything but friends, family and a partner. Money buys people clothes, food, water, shelter, education, health-care and many others. Without money you would be really, really sad because you wont be able to buy yourself things and if you can't do that you will be sad.

    Money matters because it is a sufficient trade for all our needs in this world. Because of that, we rely on money for many things and it appears that money makes us happy; money can help us to survive worst case scenarios.

    Money is all you need...but is it really that essential?

    Yes, money is really important for our survival as humans, but what if we didn’t have it? What if we had to use something else rather that money? I am sceptical about whether money can buy you happiness, because there is more to life than this, so no, money doesn’t matter, as long as you have your family and friends around you.

    Although it is my belief that money makes us happy on the outside, would winning the lottery actually make us happy on the inside? According to brandongaille.com, “According to multiple studies, about 70% of all lottery winners end up going broke and filing for a bankruptcy. About 1% of lottery winners will go bankrupt every single year.” This shows that even when people have lots of money, they do not see the value of it, which is why money doesn’t make you sensible, kind, happy...all the traits that make us human. It is more important that we focus on being us, rather than how much money we have.

    Really, it should be “money doesn’t matter”.

    "Money matters because people matter!"
    I think money matters because if you did have money, then you can buy your family food and pay of your debts, however, if you didn't have money then you would be homeless and you wouldn't be able to buy food for you and your family, you could always ask the bank for a loan but you wont be able to pay it back and will be in more debt.

    Money matters because we need to sustain life. By having money we could do this by The Economical System staying alive. The Economical System is the system of which money runs by, when you buy something other people save some money or spends it to buy needs and wants. This is how we all still have money, homes and others. Money matters because we have life.

    ‘Money matters in life, but not as much as my values in life.’

    I will explain what my sentence means. So if you saw money laying on the table would you take it, knowing full well that it’s not yours? My answer would be a  firm no, as my value stops me from doing so.

    If you had a company, would making money be more important to you than if you knowingly had to destroy the environment by doing so? No, but big companies do.

    Would you take an offer of one billion pounds in exchange for a close member of your family who you love very much?  Never ever, not even for trillions of pounds!

    And if you had a little money to spare for someone who is unfortunate ,e.g. a homeless person, would you not give it to that person? Yes, I I think most people would.

    In the society we live in, I do understand that money matters because its how we can access warmth, shelter, clothing and food but even if your values are different from mine, there will always be some values that you hold to be greater than money. For me it will never be as important as family, friends and health.

Also the money can help other people for example refugees that are in need. However, some people might think that money is not important because it increases greed because people are tempted to get more money.
