Overall winner: Emma Wilkinson Year 4 Old Sarum Primary School

Her winning entry: 

What sport means to me      

I enjoy taking part in sport because I am a ball.

I live in a cupboard in the school hall. All weekend I am bouncing about in my bag waiting for Monday morning when I hear voices getting louder and I get a hand reach in and grab me! I absolutely love it when the children throw me high, flying through the air until they catch me again.

The best day of the year is Sports Day because I get to help my friends. I like helping at sports events because of all the things the children achieve. The exercise makes them strong and healthy. They use me in teams, working with each other and even if they don’t win any games they still try their best. When its time to go back to the cupboard I am tired but happy and I cant wait for next time.
