It is quite puzzling why the state of PA would not just follow the national schedule. Or, if they are following their own schedule, they should release it earlier so that students know that their events will conflict - and would therefore not study one of the events!

They could at least give every team the same conflicts too.

My little brother is in sixth grade and the B division. He did the events Fossils and Invasive Species all year long. He won states last year as a fifth grader in fossils, and won regionals this year in invasive species. He has worked since the summer on these two events - the only two events he has - just to find out that they conflict at states. He cried for hours on end. It's just so unfair how they don't release the schedule earlier!

Yep, I'm working on it. Hopefully it'll be up by the end of the weekend (I'm having slight laptop issues)

All right, top 10 polls are live!

Division B Poll
Division C Poll



Rules
  • The form requires that you rank 10 teams, answer one tiebreaker, and provide a username. The second tiebreaker is optional, but you really just need to put a number down, so there's no reason not to.
  • Entries that include one team twice will still be included it the running, but the second inclusion of the duplicated team will be replaced by the highest team in the consensus poll (which will be posted occasionally between now and states)
  • Entries that include one team thrice or more will be deleted
  • Entries that deviate wildly from the norm will be deemed as troll entries and deleted. I will be very lenient on this, but if your entry has more than three or four glaring omissions from it, chances are I will delete it
  • If two entries are submitted under one username, I will use the second one and delete the first. Feel free to submit a second entry if you weren't pleased with your first!
  • If you want to know the status of your entry, i.e. if it is still included, just PM me and I will try to respond ASAP!
Thanks, and I'm glad you guys like this! I'll definitely try to keep doing it while I'm around, if people enjoy it.

Yep, I highly recommend filling one out for each! After states, I'll reveal who had the most accurate predictions in B and C, and who was more accurate over both, so filling out both gives you more chances at eternal glory!
