junior sportscaster


My mom entered me into a junior sportscaster contest. To enter my mom sent in my name and age. After that there was a random drawing and I was selected along with 29 other kids. Then the local news sent me an audition script. I practiced and practiced the script until it was time for the audition at training camp. They seperated the kids into two age group and I was in the lower age group. My age group went first. They had three judges. The local news sportscaster, the sports director from the local news and a former pro football player. When it was my turn I sat behind a table with a camera poited at me. I said my lines and got some autographs then left. A few days later the local news contacted my mom saying I had won. As my prize I got to interview a professinal football player that was played on the local news, an autograped football and two tickets to a football game. Me and my dad came up with some questions for the interview and it went by like a breeze. After that we went to the news statoin and I got on Live TV. A few days later I went back to the news station and got my tickets and football. In a few weeks me and my dad went to the game. The tickets were in the lower level right behind the goalpost. They were so good that we got on TV! This was one of the greatest moments of my life.
