I've got numerous proud moments, but one notable one is as follows:

2016 nationals in Menominee WI.
8th grade, and my best shot at a medal (specifically road scholar) I take the test, we do decently, but we don't get around to answering a tiebreaker, which is basically life or death at that level. At the awards, I do badly in Bottle Rockets, which I think I did well in, so I'm pretty bummed out. I don't really have any hopes of doing well in RS, so I'm just sitting there in a puddle of disappointment. However, my teammate and I get 4th place!
We were pretty happy.

But what if we had a few extra minutes, and were able to answer the tiebreaker question correctly?
200% luck I say.
Problems are better pursued with General Electric GE90-115 engines.

2016 Nats:
Road Scholar:4th 8-)
Bottle Rockets: 9th
Meteorology: 11th
Gliders: 21st

(other events: Green Gen, Crime Busters, Helicopters, Hovercraft, Air trajectory)

I'm proud of Scioly in general for shaping who I am as a person. For middle school all the way up to the end of sophomore year, I was lazy and unmotivated. When I made the Scioly team in my junior year, it definitely made me feel a lot more confident about myself. Winning shiny medals at every competition our school went to, all the way up to Nats, feels more like icing than the actual cake.

Though my favorite medal still remains the SOUP Remote Sensing 2nd place. It's not my best medal, but I had such a good time that I'm very proud of it.

Congratulations to WW-P South for winning 14th place at Nationals!

I’m not sure scioly is a proudest moment, but well said.

I too had a very good time jumping up and down on stage receiving that, yes.
