The Macdougall award is about creative writing and display. Mr Macdougall was a teacher who loved creative writing and getting the best presentation out of his students. The award was set up because in 1984 Mr Macdougall suddenly died of cancer.
My entry was about the beach:
As the sun shines it reflects off the water and shows itself upon the sand. You splash around like its the lost and found until you hurt your hand. You can look for shells and get nipped by crabs, you can laugh and play all day. It's just a thing about that makes us want to smile.
