(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The ninth semifinal of the Muscat Daily Listen Up contest was held at International School of Choueifat on Wednesday, and children, both in the junior (eight and ten years) and middle (11-14 years) categories once again showed that going up on a stage to speak their minds is not at all a difficult task for them.


Laiba Mughal and Lama Khalaf, contestants from the junior category, in their prepared speeches, spoke on My Dream Job.


While Laiba said she wanted to be a teacher, Lama went up to the stage with a countdown and announced that she wanted to be an astronaut. This, along with her impromptu speech on Who's Better: Boys or Girls? - she said answering this question would be a challenge for anyone but for her it was of course, the girls - landed Lama a place in the final.


In the middle category, four out of five contestants spoke on Manners Matter in their prepared speeches, while Maryam Salman stood out for taking a different subject and also making a strong point that girls are far better than boys. She eed with a bang with her parting statement that if the world was ruled by women it would be free of war, as they hate violence. Her extempore speech on what makes a good friend added to her points, helping her win the middle category.


Riham al Touqi was the only participant in the senior category and hence was directly chosen to represent the school in the final.


Riham only made an impromptu speech on Is Money the Root of All Evil?, where she threw light on both the positive and negative aspects of having money. On the positives, she mentioned how the poor in the world are suffering and it is the benevolence of a few that is helping them get on with life.


''There are NGOs, and even the United Nations, whose job is to channelise the money to the right and deserving people.'' While speaking on negatives, she said that the devil has his way with people who have excess money and a weak mind. ''And in most cases people with bad money meet a tragic end,'' she said, giving the example of the lead character in the book, The Great Gatsby
