They are about double the size...if i am certain
WOW THOSE ARE BIG lol
well are ur regional and states medals different sizes?
in NY the states are like double the regional but doubleing a states medal to make a national one would make a huge medal
National medals are large, maybe not double the size of our medals, but definitely bigger. Also they weigh much more

Wouldn't those be really heavy though if you were really good and got multiple medals? State medals are heavy enough, and I got 4 of those last year.

I got fifth in trajectory. I hit the pin three times out of four though, so I thought I would get first, apparently there was some very stiff competition. I've gotten several 7ths, 8ths, and 10ths, in the past three years, but trajectory was my only medal.

National medals are large, maybe not double the size of our medals, but definitely bigger. Also they weigh much more
they seem a lot larger at first but i saw side by side the difference is slight although the mass difference might be caused by thickness....

They are thicker, shinier, and easier to show off!!!! ;)
I've got 1 gold, 1 silver, and 2 bronze medals from Nats...and yes, when you have multiple medals, they are fairly heavy.

If that was sarcasm, which I suspect it is, I would say exactly what jazzy009 just said. Even if you're in a not-as-competitive state, at least your high school's best place at regionals ever isn't ninth. :x :roll: :(
