Nathan's Orcasome Prize

Today I won an awesome prize because I was the first to enter both Orca competitions. You can see my drawing and my poem. I won an Orcasome DVD called Killers I Have Known. I feel amazed and excited to watch my new DVD! I am so proud of myself. I am one of the few people in New Zealand that has the DVD.
