Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “talk about a prize you want to win” topic

(What prize it is?) Winning prizes are always an enthusiastic part of the events. It boosts confidence and gives a sense of accomplishment. In my school days, I’ve won many prizes in the form of awards, trophies, and medals. Now, I am secretly wishing to win a marathon competition, where the winner will receive a cheque of Rs 1 lakh, a certificate of appreciation and a Gold medal. (How do you know about it?) I saw the advertisement about the marathon competition in a newspaper. It is a charity event, sponsored by the State Bank of India. The race is conducted to spread awareness about diseases like cancer and AIDS. The primary purpose of conducting the marathon competition is to raise funds for charity and is scheduled to be held in the first week of April. (What will you do to win it?) Though I am not a professional runner, I have motivated myself to be better. I have started to prepare for the competition by waking up early and  working out and then running for at least 3 hours. It’s just that I will have to work on improving my time. (Why do you want to win it?) There may be several avid racers aiming for the prize money. But I desperately want to win this marathon competition as it is being conducted for a good cause. Also, I will share the prize money with an orphanage and an old age home. And with the remaining money, I will take care of the expenses of the disabled people.
