Create & Win an Award
Remember to “thank the Academy”
We’ve all accepted an Academy Award, holding a hairbrush as a microphone. Now, make up an award, declare yourself the winner, and write a thank-you speech.
First, decide what award you will win. Is it for excelling in sports, writing or a hobby? Give it a name. And, if you want, draw a picture of what your award looks like.
Next, write an acceptance speech. Decide who you will thank and why they were instrumental in helping you win. Remember, if you haven’t done so already, you may win an award some day. So this is great practice. Be as creative as you want and have fun.
Extra Credit: Create an award and bestow it upon a friend, sibling or parent. Explain what the award is and why they won it. Instead of a thank you speech, write a congratulatory speech. They’ll be thrilled.
