By royal appointment

02jul2019-royalOn Friday, June 14th, we couldn't wait to wake up. The seven of us were so excited and more eager than ever to get to school. Yet our adventure had already began three months earlier when we entered the What is a King for You? contest.

It was time to collect our award. It didn't matter what prize we were given. We already felt like winners as we'd made the final line-up.

Arriving at the airport, we met some of the competition. On the plane, we were handed chocolates, sweets, and wipes. After landing in Tenerife, we were bused to the Canary Islands Government Headquarters.

We felt very fortunate to be one of the 38 finalists from a total of 784 participants. They showed us into the room where you could see all the entries. Then we passed to where they announced who would have a reception with King Felipe VI.

Here, we met the Deputy Education Minister, the Fies Foundation President, and the Orange Director who handed us our consolation prizes. We were sad not to win. However, we were happy to make it over to Tenerife in the first place.
