Re: New York 2019

Congratulations to Gelinas and Eagle Hill! Every team did phenomenal and the awards ceremony was quite an emotional ride. We did get 3rd, but we are truly happy for the top 2 teams going to Nationals. Good job everybody.

Re: Crime Busters B

Re: Crime Busters B

Can you write the essay in a list format such as: Jack (Guilty) - Evidence - Evidence - Motive Ethan (Innocent) - Evidence that connects him - Why it is not true Etc. Please help I never have.

Re: New York 2019

Personally, I would have to predict these schools as the top 5: 1) Paul J Gelinas Self-explanatory. 2) Bay // Murphy This has been the talk for the last few months.
