Beards and moustaches in NY - level 2

Bearded and moustached men took to the streets of New York. They promoted the National Beard and Moustache Championship.

There were 18 different categories in the championship, and the people in it must follow their rules. The overall winner won a trip to the next year’s championship. The top three in each category received a medal.

Some people take growing their hair very seriously. They may even have secret techniques.

Difficult words: bearded (with a beard – hair which grows around the chin and cheeks), moustache (hair which grows between the mouth and the nose), promote (to tell people about).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
