Haskell: Dawn Skinner
Event: News Writing
How long you've been competing in UIL: UIL since 3rd grade, News since 9th grade
What's the most challenging/nerve-wracking thing about your event: The most nerve-wracking thing is when the timekeeper says we have five minutes left. I usually get tense and start typing faster because I'm scared I won't finish on time--but I always do.
First thing you'll do when you win: Scream with excitement! Then text my mom, sister, and friends and tell them the good news.
Past honors in the event: 2008: 2nd place District. 2009: 4th Place City View, 2nd Place District, 3rd Place Regional
Extracurricular activities/other UIL events: Also do feature writing and Editorial writing. I play trumpet in the band. I'm involved in FFA including Dairy product judging, which went to state the last 2 years. I am the news editor for the school newspaper, The War Whoop. And a member of Quill & Scroll.
College plans: I plan to attend Tarleton State University where I want to get a degree in business.
Birthplace: Wichita Falls, TX
One thing your parents, a sibling or even a best friend might not know about you: When I was little I always dreamed about becoming a famous ice skater, but now I dream about owning my own magazine company.
