Haskell: Dawn Skinner


Grade: 10

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.
