GIFTED AWARENESS WEEK COMPETITION 2012 - RESULTS To mark Gifted Awareness Week (18th–24th June, 2012), the New Zealand Association for Gifted Children ran a competition to celebrate gifted kids, their families and professional educators, with support from HarperCollins Publishers, Warehouse Stationery, New Zealand Geographic, Post Haste, Weta Digital and South Pacific Pictures. The theme of this year’s competition was ‘Connections’ and entrants were invited to interpret this theme in any way they chose. Comments from the Judges: * The writing standard was exceptional this year. * In a number of poems the theme ‘connections’ was more obscure. This impacted on the final result. The results, announced today, are as follows: WRITING 1st=: Lucy Jessep. Yr 5, Selwyn House School, Christchurch. 1st=: Alison Winstanley. Yr 6 St Cuthberts College Auckland 3rd =: Jamie Norris. Yr 6 Northcote Primary School, Auckland 3rd=: Isabella Sagar. Yr 6 St Cuthberts College, Auckland. Commended: Rosie Greig. Yr 5 Clearview Primary School, Rolleston. Commended: Geoffrey Kemp. Age 10 Rotary Park School, Dunedin. Commended: Amelie Harris. Age 9 Dunsandel School, Leeston. Congratuations to the students who produced poems for the competition. I’m sure that you will agree that the remarks of the judges reflect the quality of work submitted. Well done everyone. Mrs Hunter
