Just won an award but i need to write a phrase about how happy I am to win it. Anybody think of how another way to write ' winning this award was the icing on the cake'? Its got to be 50-100 words This is what i have so far but I dont like the icing on the cake part... Having qualified from Sheffield Hallam University with a first class degree, receiving third prize in the 2008 CIAT Student Awards for Technical Excellence was for me, icing on the cake. Following a four year demanding course, it justifies all the hard work that not only me but also my lectures have undertaken. I feel privileged that my endeavours have been rewarded and will be honoured receive my award in London.
