Call for submissions! If your team's device placed in the top ten at this year's national tournament, we'd love to have pictures or videos of it on our The Best of 2017 Wiki!

If possible, please include a description about your device. Because everyone benefits when we share, devices that did not place in the top ten are sometimes allowed.

I would be interested in hearing the opinion of the SciOly community pertaining to the planning and execution of the 2017 national award ceremony. I found it somewhat degrading in how they only permitted a coach and a captain to come on stage when they recognized the 7th-10th place teams. All in all it felt rather rushed and didn't seem to provide the degree of recognition deserved by the hardworking individuals who placed (in an event or within a team) at nationals.

First, I would remark that this is consistent with past years. They did not shortchange teams this year after recognizing teams in the past.

To actually address your question, I think their goal was to strike a balance between moving quickly through the 20 team awards they had to announce and recognizing each team appropriately. If I remember correctly, the ceremony had already been going on for two and a half hours. Personally, I think they struck the right balance.

Correct. This has been the standard way we do things for MANY years now. It's all about the time available.

Oh, I see now. It seems that I simply didn't notice it at the 2016 award ceremony.

Basically. I also learned some neat YouTube shortcuts for skipping in ten second intervals.

Looks like it's the average ranking for teams in both division at nationals by state, using all available records.
