Elizabeth Morrisroe, 18, was one of the main winners at the festival, scooping awards for prose speaking and Bible reading among others.
She said: "I performed original verses and performed a solo piece from Anne Frank's diary. This is my last year competing as I am off to university in September to study medicine.
"I never studied drama, so this competition has helped me build confidence and given me skills for interviews. I have been competing in the festival for 10 years and enjoyed every part of it.
"It is a great thing to do and I would recommend other people to take part."
Secretary of the festival, Jane Holmes, said: "We have had a fantastic week with some brilliant audiences."
Meanwhile the music section of the North Lincolnshire Music and Drama Festival, in Brigg, concluded on March 7.
The drama section began on Monday and finished yesterday (Wednesday).
A concert and presentation of awards will be held on Saturday (March 16) at 6pm.
