We have a good shot this year at winning. The team's all fired up about the prospect of going to Nationals. We don't know how well our rivals (the perennial champions) will do this year. We made it in 2012 and got second last year, so we honestly don't know what'll happen. We believe we can make it if we work hard enough.
How many teams from your state qualify for Nationals?

Only one, unfortunately. Even though we have better teams than some other states *cough* Florida *cough* that get two teams. Our Nationals teams consistently place in the 20s, and I wish the number of bids would be determined by something other than just team numbers.
TSA's pretty cool... i guess

I went in 2012 with my middle school, and it was incredible. Wish I could go again, but... Brookwood and GSMST.

Wait so Kansas gets to send 2 B teams?
I have asked this a ton before but I just wanted to make sure it's true :)
Quick question (this is my 1st year in Scio, sorry) but at state award ceremonies, do they (for overall placements) say like "And these teams are going to Nats? *deadly suspenseful moment* *"1st place"* *"Second Place*"?
Ento is Lyfe. <3 Ento. <3 Bugs. <3 Insects.
I didn't choose the Bug Lyfe, the Bug Lyfe chose me.

At PA states they announced up to and including 4th place B, then up to and including 4th place C, then announced all of the winners. the suspense of who the unlucky 3rd place team would be was KILLING me. we honestly did not expect to make it.

I still can't imagine anything beating the tension when our school (newish to SO and never appeared at Nats) was announced as tied for second with Marie Murphy. It was ridiculous; I still can't believe it. Congratulations to you for making it, Tom.
