Winning streak



A few days ago I won the By-My-Art t-shirt competition. And today, the Prep's Garden video (featured above) which I shot late last year won the TV/video category of the IICA/CARDI Excellence in Agricultural Journalism Award 2009.

As I sat in the prize giving ceremony today, waiting to hear the results, I thought of how great it would be to win ... not just for winning's sake, but because I know the children, their parents, their teachers and the entire school were so excited and pleased when I did the video ... and would be thrilled if it won.

Looking forward to going to the school (my old primary school - The University School) and surprising them on Monday morning at assembly, by announcing the victory.

Splitting the prize money will be the cherry on top.

Huge Congratulations on a double win!
I LOVE the video. The children are so beautiful and the garden is wonderful.
Such fertile earth you have there.
So well done.
I will send this link to my cousin who is a recently retired Kindergarden teacher who always had a huge garden for her class!
