yeah...though they do tweak it a little sometimes...they had quite a few spelling mistakes on this year's one (Chrondrichthyes instead of Chondrichthyese completely threw me off)

Chondrichthyese is also incorrect, just so people know not to make that mistake.
They said "Chrondrichthyes" it is "Chondricthyes", they added an r.

Also, in general, from year to year, or even from generation to generation (generation being used to describe the 2-3 year rotation periods), identification events tend not to change much, if at all. The new list will almost certainly be either identical, or nearly identical, to this years list.
Events: Herpetology, Fossils, Entomology, Rocks & Minerals, Ornithology, Ecology
Nationals 2008: 1st in Herpetology
Nationals 2009: 1st in Herpetology, 2nd in Fossils

Harriton Class of 2010
