Is it written in large, friendly letters?

Not many people know/care about Science Olympiad at my school. I'd wonder why, but I think I already know.
Also, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I think that you're going to have to give out a lot of cookies.

Seriously. This is scioly, not the normal population. Pretty much everyone knows and loves Hitchhiker's Guide. And yeah, in NY B division it is fairly competitive, but only among the top three teams, two of which are from my district. After that it was over one hundred points to fourth place. In C division it is much more competitive.

My school, Archimedean, only has like 250 kids in the middle school, and even less in the high school, so naturally we get way to much publicity, I'd rather not get so much recognition, they kind of just use that to say to the other kids; "You should be like them."

But yes, everyone knows who we are.
