I guess the school gives them medals for participating? I guess those shouldn't technially count in medal count, because they're not for medals, but they are Science Olympiad related...that's nice you get medals for participating though. :)

LMFAO. I only have one. Third place for Crave the Wave.
And my partner gets all the credit ._.
WELL. I DID STUFF TOO, BUT NOOOO. HE HAD TO SPEED THROUGH THE WHOLE THING BEFORE I GOT A CHANCE TO PROCESS THE MEANINGS OF THE QUESTIONS D:
But it's okay that I'm kind of insulting him, because we're family friends. Kind of ^-^;
BUTBUT. This is my first year, and I was booted off the team after regionals xD
That was my lame excuse :mrgreen:;;
I'm still an alternate, though :D

Booted is an exaggeration. I'm guessing that she was replaced by someone else. That's what happened to my brother. (even though my brother shouldn't have been. Our coach likes "to give other kids a chance to compete")

She wasn't booted off the team; she was on one of the other teams (not the A team), and so she only got to compete at Regionals.

Oh. Okay. I wasn't sure, because on my team the coach changes some kids between regionals and states to give more kids the experience, even though they're not necessarily better.

We generally only change if someone does a lot more work on multiple events than the current competitors or if someone has so many conflicts that they have to learn like 3 new events.

2008: Regionals-3, States-5
2009: Regionals-2, States-4
2010: Regionals-1, States-2, Nationals-19 :)

i think medal count varies based on what ur state.regional gives out for. Like in NY its 1-5 medals and no ribbons but in other states its like 1-3 medals and 4-6/7 ribbons

Ribbons? thats new to me, we don't have those on our S.O. out here. plus, our medals go 1st-3rd.
1-3 that sucks yea not every state has ribbons i think Massachusetts does but i odnt know any others

yeah, i have to say going to my first nats in 2007 and seeing more than 1-3 get medals im like "WHOA!". Just goes to show how different the competitions are.
