They're definitely larger (and subsequently heavier).
It somewhat depends. I just took a pic of some from my personal collection, showing gold-silver-bronze for both State and Nationals of the 'old style' (see attached below). All of those are exactly 63 mm in diameter. I also took a picture of the 'new style' that replaced the old style several years ago (see below). Those are 68 mm in diameter. I don't have any new style state ones to compare them to though.
New style state is about 63 mm (at least, mine are; I don't know whether they differ between states).

They're twice as thick as a state medal and have a slightly larger diameter. Also, not sure if it was just for 2012, but they inscribed "Sponsored by DuPont" on the back of mine.
Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.

Was there a specific reason for making all engineering events walk in? I just see it being hectic. Especially with bungee because everyone wants to go last. Maybe it'll be fine but it sounds like a stressful plan.

The ESUS Login is the same as the team portal login. You can get to the ESUS trial schedule signups through the team portal.

Mine from 2014 says "Sponsored by DuPont" as well.

Does anyone know which states/teams are doing which topic?
