(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The semifinal round of the Muscat Daily Listen Up contest at Al Sahwa School saw some splendid speeches on Sunday.


Of the 12 students who participated, Zanaib Sajwani, Waddah al Rashdi and Roxanne Kleinveldt made their way into the finals in the junior, middle and senior categories respectively.


The three students will represent their school in the finals, which will be held at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel on April 18.


In her prepared speech, Zanaib who won in the junior category spoke on My favourite film.


She said, ''My favourite film is Red Cloud: Deliverance. The film taught me the importance of loyalty and how to be myself. It is okay if people talk about me but I have to be myself and I will not change even if people want me to.''


Another contestant who won the audiences' hearts was Lubna al Taei from the same category. The smile on her face made the speech even more impressive. She spoke on the topic How to spend a rainy day? in the unprepared speech category.


Winner in the middle category, Waddah floored the audience with his engaging speech. His excellent pronunciation and body language got him through to the finals.


In the prepared section, he chose the topic, Who is better, boys or girls? And in the unprepared section, he spoke on A day in my life.


Meanwhile, Dua'a al Ghailani, also from the middle category gave Waddah a tough competition.


He was announced the runner-up.


The senior category too saw its share of wit and grit. But Roxanne Kleinveldt, with her rich vocabulary emerged the winner. Her unprepared speech on the topic, School is really OK was funny and impressive. ''I like my school because they serve free hummus. School also means a place where I can have fun with my friends.''


Meanwhile, Jumana al Rashdi who was declared the runner-up in the same category spoke on the topic, If I could pass a law it would be... . Jumana said she would like to pass a law on banning plastic bags in the country. She said that it is our responsibility to take care of the environment.
