Jubilant_horse and honorable_conclusion
What a fantastic first round of entries on the Hub! Well done to everyone who took part by entering, reading others’ ideas, or a mix of both! There were some superb reasoning and open-mindedness on show in your responses.
Our primary school winner, Jubilant_horse, gave a thoughtful and original caption and explained it through a detail in the picture that may not have been obvious straight away.
Honorable_conclusion was our secondary winner. They presented a range of developed reasons and they regularly linked back to the caption and the image, bringing in interesting examples from the real-world, too.
Stars have been awarded to entries that did particularly well at combining an original caption idea and supported with well-explained reasons that referred closely to the picture.
If you didn't enter this time, why not enter Competition #2? You'll find it under 'Announcements'. Good luck!
WEEKLY COMPETITION #1...
Can you write a caption for this picture?
Every week, you'll find a different competition to take part in. These will either be linked to one of the Burnet News Club skills or the Issue you are currently working on. And often both!
This week, we'd like you to write a caption for the picture above. A caption is a short sentence which you often see beneath photographs in newspapers, books and on websites.
What can you see? What phrase sums up the photo best?
Write your caption, followed by a short explanation of why you chose this caption. There's lots of ways to interpret this image - so there's no one right answers and we'll get lots of different opinions.
The best entries will show that REASONING and OPEN-MINDEDNESS.
There will always be one primary and one secondary school winner and we announce who they are on a Friday lunchtime. We will announce the winner of this competition on 13th September. Good luck!
