Judges' Comments : "Commendable effort was put in by all the participants in Moo-O 2023, a digital storytelling competition open to Primary 3 students across Singapore. It was extremely enjoyable watching and listening to student portrayals of various characters in the story. The event organised by Teevers and supported by the Speak Good English Movement has, in my opinion, achieved its aims to motivate students to read and speak both fluently and expressively while cultivating a love for the English language. The students not only spoke fluently and expressively, they made the characters in the story come alive through the narration process. What was made evident to me was that these students were engaged and were having fun while using the English language. Equally impressive was the ability the students displayed in handling the audio and visual resources of the Moo-O software. Well done to all, you are all winners!"
- Dr Kiren Kaur

"All of the submissions were enjoyable in their own ways. Characterisation was generally well done, with good efforts observed in channeling the various emotions that their characters were experience. Some of the submissions could do with a deeper examining of how the different characters felt at different moments. The characters all have more than 1 emotion, so a good understanding of how these emotional changes would lead to better and wider variation of their performances. There are many dramatic moments in the stories and many points where the energy of the narrative changes. One thing for the students to note is that volume is not the only tool you can use in showing these movements and changes – loudness is not only way to perform something powerful! Consider other options such as the speed of speech, tone and vocal effects. Overall, it is heartening to see how the submissions are generally fluent with good pronunciation. The future is bright! Keep up the good work!"
- Mr Lee De Yi

"A great effort by students to dramatise the scripts with creative vocalisations of the characters, humorous facial expressions and by varying the tonality of their voices. I was impressed by how articulate and fluent the students were and laughed at the humour contained in the videos. Good cooperation and teamwork could be seen from the videos. Keep trying, working hard and improving on your craft. Hope you had fun too!"
- Ms Sophia Huang

"Well done to the participants! Smooth reading in general for all. Those who attempted 'Help Hilary Help' tended to fare better. They were able to immerse in the drama and enliven the reading of the script."
- Dr Donna Lim

"Well done to all the teams! 😊
For all the teams, reading is generally fluent with very few mispronunciations. There are some teams who incorporated very creative use of voice, sound and facial expression. These really help to engage the viewer throughout the performance! Through the use of these elements, they were also able to bring across the subtle meanings beyond the text to the readers succinctly, hence enhancing their Moo-O performances.
Continue to read widely and may you always find joy in reading!"
- Ms. Melody Heng

"Congratulations, teachers and students! Amazing work indeed! Your performances were so interesting that I found it hard to stop in the middle of my review. From the way you presented the stories, it is obvious that you have invested a great deal of effort in understanding the storyline and the personality of each character. I am also thrilled by your creative use of all available resources (your lips, your eyes, your eyebrows, your voice and even your teeth…) in order to bring the story to life. So, keep up your good work and I look forward to your next production!"
- Dr Andrina Lou

"Most teams have put in an excellent effort in delivering the story they have chosen. Teams that do well have utilized a balance of excellent pronunciation, pacing and expressive voice. This made each character come alive. This is supported with creative use of sounds and music to set the mood at appropriate points of the story.
Teams that have done well placed particular attention in pronouncing words such as "the" (thuh)."
