Andrea Wins Again!
Andrea Lake, an Access student at Doncaster College,
just keeps winning competitions. This time she has scooped first
prize in a short story competition.
Last December, Andrea won a film review competition and now she
has won the competition entitled 'If I won £5000…' which was run by
the Learning Resource Centre at Doncaster College, as part of
English and Maths week.
Once again, Andrea’s entry, which was a poem, stood out for the
judging panel and she has added to her haul of high street vouchers
after receiving her prize from Bonny Hodge, Deputy Principal at
This will be the last competition Andrea will be able to enter
at Doncaster College as the 40 year old from Selby has a place
lined up at Leeds University studying English Literature and
English Language in a combined Bachelors of Arts Degree. Naturally,
she hopes to get work as a writer and wants to get a job in
copywriting when she enters the world of work.
The short story competition was sponsored by the Learning
Resource Centre, The Learning Zone and the Functional Skills
Department, all based at the College.
Held once a term at the College, the aim of English and Maths
week is to raise awareness of the importance of good English and
Maths skills for everyday life, as well the successful achievement
of qualifications leading to future employment.
