Seven-year-old wins best speech performer overall
HUNDREDS of children are enjoying themselves and achieving at this year's Maryborough Eisteddfod.
A little girl who has stood out for punching above her weight is Bonnie Quinn-Hennessy.
The seven-year-old won the most outstanding speech performer overall for 20 years and under.
In addition she also placed first in seven sections, which was every section she was entered into.
Bonnie's father Michael said he was incredibly proud of his little girl.
"We didn't go to the awards ceremony so we didn't realise until the next day she won the best overall speech performer under 20 years," he said.
Bonnie entered her first eisteddfod when she was four or five .
"This year was the first she was allowed to enter into other things because she's a bit older," her father said.
Bonnie won after she recited several pieces from Roald Dahl books and other poetry.
This year's Maryborough Eisteddfod has drawn more than 1000 entries.
