I find that curious. I have had the honor of being in the Parade of States at the Wichita Nationals, but not because I was a captain. It was my first year doing C Division Olympiad, and as custom, my school sends the newbies up to hold the banner. It's kind of like an initiation.

Yep, we did that here too. My freshman year they made me carry it because I was an alternate; last year they made me do it again because I was the youngest. If we go to nationals again, I would carry the banner again, because... I'm still the youngest. :|

Haha cool, a parade of states. Like the Parade of Nations in the real Olympics.

/me begs Randolph HS and Auburn JHS not to sing "Sweet Home Alabama" at any time during the flag ceremony. >_<

My friend, who's another officer in my United Way, MAY be there (she's not sure if she's interested in going to Nats <--- out of her mind! I WOULD DIE FOR THAT CHANCE!!!)...

In our middle school team, we have some freshmen, so they will hold the flag.

What are you guys and girls wearing? (for the opening ceremony)

I heard people wear pretty formal stuff like prom-ish attire.

Too bad, since I come from Hawaii...guess what we have to wear?
YEAH ALOHA PRINT. T___T
I'm trying really hard to get the "mandatory aloha print dress" repealed for our team. I'm not paying $45 for that....

I don't think people usually get really formal for the opening ceremony, although I'm sure someone does. Most schools wear tee-shirts that somehow represent their school or state. It's the award ceremony that everyone gets dressed up for.
