Sample Answer 2


Well, competitions play an important role in motivating people to learn new things which help to gain valuable experience. I love to take part in different kind of competitions which create a new opportunity to show our talent.

Today i am going to talk about a cultural competition in which i would like to take part in. Every year, this competition is organized by youth club of our society in our hometown. In this contest, we can participate in various activities like Giddha, Bhangra, Singing, painting and many more.

The main motive of this event is to make youngsters aware about our culture and traditions. I would like to take part in Giddha which is the popular folk dance of punjab, India. In this dance, girls stand in a circle formation and a lead girl generally sings a traditional folk song which is also called boli. Then the entire girls repeat that song. The rhythm is created by the clapping of hands and no other instruments are used during this dance.

The reason why i have developed interest in it because i used to participate in Giddha during my school and college time where my friends and teachers always appreciated me for my performance. This thing boosted my confidence and now i will do more hard work in this dance in order to achieve first prize.


So, this is a competition in which i want to take part in and i am eagerly waiting for that day.
