The iPod Competition Winners!

North West

As part of the COLT Language Enrichment Events in winter 2009/10 All pupils that attended a COLT Language Enrichment Event in winter 2009/10 could enter our iPod competition and have the chance to win a brand new ipod Touch or an iPod Shuffle.
To win, they had to submit a picture/photograph of the day, along with a written account of the event through their eyes. This could be about their favourite Language taster, cultural activity or even student ambassador, their thoughts on language learning or maybe what it’s like to experience a brand new language. We also wanted to know whether the event made them think differently about language learning.

For this Winter season, we received over 20 entries from approximately 10 different schools in the North West. The schools were asked to submit their two best entries for the chance to win the star prize of an iPod Touch, or one of two iPod shuffles for the runners up. It was down to the COLT Team to judge all the photos and written accounts, and select the winners. We would like to thank all the pupils for their brilliant entries and the schools for their support.

After much deliberation and consideration, we have finally chosen our winners! We are pleased to announce that Patrick Mitchell is the proud owner of a brand new iPod Touch, and Ellie Tallon and Paige Humphries have won their very own iPod Shuffles!!!
