    It takes Effort to Win

    Have I ever won a trophy? Yes, I won the highest award of the school, Pastors Award. I was the youngest student ever to receive it.
    I had a lot of encouragement throughout the year. My teacher was so helpful. Every time I needed help, he would explain it. My family was also very encouraging. They told me never to give up, and that God will help me.
    I value the reward because it is an honour to win the Pastor's Award, since sometimes it's not even given out! Its given to a student who shows Godly character and excellent academic achievement throughout the year.
    I love this award because it is a reminder of how God helped me.

    See above for corrections. Your incorrect spelling of "grammar" is a very common error but it's important to get it right. When is your short essay due to be submitted to your teacher/tutor?
