By Claire, 10

I was watching television when they read out the three names of the contestants who had won, which were me (Claire), Bethan and Laura. The prize for the competition was to be on a game show on a far away island.

So, there I was getting on the plane when the other contestants decided not to go.

"Why are you not going, are you worried?" I asked them. "Yes, we are too nervous to go on a plane and worried about the game show," they told me.

I tried to convince them by telling them that they might be happy if they won, but they still said they didn't want to get onto the plane. The plane took me, just me, to the island.
