Congratulations to the winner Cody Southern, with our two runners up being Imogen Teare and Edith Clarke. There were also seven Highly Commended stories. All 10 winners received Waterstones book tokens, with their winning stories being displayed in the children’s section of Yeovil Waterstones.
The YCAA are delighted to be able to sponsor the talented dancer from Yeovil, Alex Jackson. Alex, then 16 years of age, was selected last year to attend the prestigious Urdang Academy of Dance in London, and we sought the opportunity to sponsor Alex in his endeavours. Obviously living and being educated in London is so very expensive and the opportunity to earn is not there until he reaches the age of 18 years.
During his first year at the Academy he has danced on the XFactor and at Move It 2010. His teachers ensure that he regularly works alongside professionals and experienced choreographers. His end of year report is outstanding.
Even though he has been extremely busy learning so many types of dance, acting and stage presence, he has never failed to keep in touch with the YCAA charting his progress.
Well done Alex on all your achievements and we hope your next year will be just as satisfying and successful.
If anyone else is interested in sponsoring Alex please contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
