Hello all,

You see, a couple weeks ago I entered this Kiwanis Music festival and won the cello concerto competition. One good news, one bad news. The good news is that I've been awarded a scholarship. The bad news is that they now want me to write a thank you letter to the donor of my scholarship. If I don't, I might be in trouble.

I don't know what to write.. Is it supposed to be long? How does this sound...


Hi, my name is xxx and I've been awarded the "xxxxxxxxx scholarship" in recognition and appreciation of my talent and high achievement(this part sounds conceited). Thank you for the scholarship, it will help me in continuing my cello studies.

To be honest, I don't think I should be awarded this scholarship. There were many other kids who were a lot better than me, and I don't understand why they decided to give me first prize.

(Perhaps a little bit about my cello history..? When I started, when I got serious about it, who I'm studying with etc...? Are donors interested in this kinda stuff?)

Sincerely yours,

I really don't know what to write. Anyone have any experience with writing thank you letters to donors?

Thanks for any help.


P.S. I never thought I could receive this many emails in one day!
