Somebody-Wanted-But-So-Then Tic-Tac-Toe

For one of my Tic-Tac-Toe's this week I chose to do the Somebody-Wanted-But-So-Then Tic-Tac-Toe. What you have to do is read an article and then summarise the story that I just read. I find that it is a great way for me to summarise a story and learn which parts are important in a summary and what you don't really need to put in as I have learnt that summarising is when you focus on the "key"points/ the details of the story you just read. I read the story four flags chosen as NZ is getting/chosing a new flag.
This is the model We/I used to summarise the story

Somebody- There is no main person in the story as it is the people of NZ choosing the flag but the people who designed each of the four flag could be the main people

Wanted- New Zealand wants a new flag that we can relate to and represents our country, also a flag that doesn't look like another country's. Our goal is to try and make everyone happy with the new flag.

But- The new flag will cost over 25million dollars and not everyone will like the flag that most people chose.

So- The first referendum will be held between November the 20th and the 11th of December.

Then- In March 2016 the public will decided what flag we will have...
I personally like this flag because it has the silver fern and lots of the NZ colors, Black, White and Red. It also has the southern cross on it. It is also similar to some of our sports  teams flags like the All blacks and the Silver ferns.
Here is my summary:
Four flags have been chosen to maybe be the new NZ flag. The first referendum will be held between November the 20th and the 11th of December, and the whole project will cost around 25million. The public will be asked to rank them to decide the final option. This will determine which of the designs will run against the current flag in a second referendum in March 2016 to decide which flag New Zealand will use in the future.
