I think that the experience you described shows courage, calmness, intelligence and heroism but if there were many applications and only one winner, I would think that the judges would pick someone who influenced their peers. This is only my opinion, but since they are children (im assuming?) they would have listened to you anyways, its not like you had to convince them to go into the room (?). I really don't mean to put down what you did in any way but I'm just trying to put myself in the head of the judges who pick a winner. If someone else started a student club for example, or a rally for a charity or global issue they might have a better chance than you if the essay is evaluating leadership alone.
Good luck either way! and the good marks will definitely help you :)
