I'm really pleased and proud to receive this award. If you are good at speaking to an audience you could bring in something memorable that happened on the course and perhaps thank the tutors. One of colleges among them invited us to a seminar function and award function where I will receive an award on behalf of my branch and I have to say some words there.
I am an officer in a bank and my branch has accounts of all the schools and colleges in that area.
I'm very pleased and honored to win it this year. Thank you to my supervisor (name) and my co-workers (names, names) for helping me to do my job well."I feel it will be more professional if you mention the award and how pleased you are to receive it, rather than to say how shy you are, with the possible inference that you do not deserve the award.
I will be receiving an award for being the best popular student of an accounting class at the 2015 graduation from Bayero University in Kano, Nigeria. I always found the best speeches were very short and included lots of thanks to other people/companies for their assistance/contributions.
It's been a great course and I've made some good friends. I am very hesitant about how I will do, as I have never given a speech anywhere.
I will be recognized for the 15 years of service with the company. Be sure and say how grateful you are for the good working relationship you with the schools, and thank them for the honor.
