  1. Heather:

    A poetry contest in Middle school that nobody remembers.

    I almost won first, but came in second by a few points.

  2. Heath:

    I actually won a poetry contest in middle school with my poem called “The Golden Speck” (it was about an eagle flying way up high). I think it’s funny because of how close our names and experiences are, Heather 🙂

  3. Kirsten:

    I won a writing contest in grade 7! 🙂 Just a story, not poetry.

    Also, my best friend and I used to phone the local radio station all the time, the called us “Random Tandem” sometimes I get recognized on the street.

  4. Angria:

    I was valedictorian of my K – 8th grade school. And I won the science fair two years in a row.

  5. I was a part of a team that wrote and directed a musical! Great fun

  6. Caleb:

    Football…senior year of high school. Had scouts from Wisconsin University, Michigan State, and Illinois…and I had my college scholarship ripped from under me by a dirty shot to my knee tearing every tendon in my knee..

  7. I was an achiever in my grade and high school years. I won a gold medal in declamation and bagged the first honors in sixth grade. In my freshman year in high school, I hit the headlines (our school paper) when I received a trophy for winning a story-telling contest. I was the first in ranking three years in a row and finally became the valedictorian of class 2004. High school fame was awesome. 😀

  8. Dee:

    I was high school valedictorian. I also joined a televised quiz show when I was in high school and college. And that was more than 15 minutes. =D

  9. TV Commercials 🙂

    I placed in the top 5 of a journalism contest. I won’t know what place I won until the ceremony next Tuesday. It’s exciting because I’ve been writing small things since 7th grade and now in 11th grade I’m finally doing things to be recognized for.

    My face and name have been in the newspaper twice: once for Girl Guides and once for a soccer tournament. That’s pretty much it, aside from a few school awards.

  21. T:

    I was in a school comedy play and got a huge long-lasting laugh, the biggest of the night. Everyone was speaking for weeks about how funny I was. It was also featured in the news paper.

    I was also an extra on the latest Chronicle Of Narnia film and can briefly be seen in the trailer and the whole film.

    I was in a football game(8th grade year) and my team(scoggins seahawks)were losing 6-0 and after the other team got a touchdown, they kicked the ball to us, and as the ball was coming toward me, i was nervous, so when i tried to catch it, it sliped out of my hands and went to the in-zone, and i ran back pick it up, and droped it again, and when i looked up so many ppl were coming towards me, so i finally picked it up and i started running, and as i looked around no one was on me, so i ran it back,and then we kicked a field goal, to put us in the lead.But we didnt win the game, they got another touchdown with 47sec. on the clock, But we played good for a finle score of 12-8, but one day i will play in the NFL. *gods helping me*

    this year i held a 2 min speech in front of almost 1500 people (mostly teenagers), all participants in the 5th Romanian scouts jamboree. it was pretty awesome! for those 2 min of “fame”, i had to prepare for hours each day during the previous week. i gave up a lot of my free time, but it was worth it.
