I just have quick question. Has anyone here gotten higher than 20 medals in one year? (This was in division B, not sure yet if C is more competitive or equal).

I think I'm at exactly 20 for this year (that's including ribbons, without ribbons will be 16).

What are ribbons for?

Generally the lower places, so anything below 6th place (7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th)

With three or more invitationals, 20+ isn't too hard. I first reached 20 in one year in 2015, with six total tournaments.

CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: Start studying for an event 24 hours before competition- Literally every first competition each season

SPEEDWRITE ACHIEVEMENT: Finish half of your test or more in the last 15 minutes- Every dynamic planet test. I never know how much time I have left so I end up taking my time on the first half and then freak out when they say that I only have 15 minutes left...

EULER ACHIEVEMENT: Take a calculation-based test without a calculator- It wasn't actually calculator based, but the rule sheet said that we could bring in a calculator. Every version of the Dynamic Planet test I've taken before state didn't require the use of a calculator, so at state, I decided to not bring in a calculator, but I ended up needing it. :cry:

NEWTON-LEIBNIZ ACHIEVEMENT: The equation (or information) is not on your cheat sheet, so you derive it (or reason it out) during the test- Dynamic planet during regional... UGH :cry:

MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: Completely guess an answer for a multiple choice/matching question and be right- Pembroke Hills invitationals...

BS ACHIEVEMENT: Make up your own theory to a Short Essay question and get full points for the question- Literally every dynamic planet test, although I don't think I've ever gotten full points before

HOST ACHIEVEMENT: Win an event with a completely useless partner- Smithton Invitationals in fast facts. My partner didn't even know he was doing the event until 2 days before and he's never done the event before. I basically did the entire test by myself and ended up winning first :D :D

STUDY EVENT PARASITISM ACHIEVEMENT: Use a binder/notes/cheat sheet made by a previous team member instead of your own- Pembroke hills invitationals dynamic planet. One of my friends did this event last year, so I just used his cheat sheet without even looking over it beforehand. Turns out, there was a LOT of stuff missing from it...

UNCONTESTED ACHIEVEMENT: Beat the 2nd place team by a ridiculous margin- Roller coaster at regional. I think my roller coaster was the only one that actually qualified...

UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Get lost on the way to competition/at competition site when trying to find your rooms- Every single competition. It doesn't matter how many times I've been there. There's a reason why I do

EDIT: I just remembered, MEGA-CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: Start studying for an event the day of competition. I found out that I was doing Write it Do it at one of the invitationals two days before the competition and instead of studying for it, I was too busy studying for fast facts because I knew I had a useless partner for that. I didn't even read the rules for Write it Do it until about 30 minutes before I had to take the test... My partner and I could've won, except instead of writing toothpick, I wrote really small popsicle stick and that caused us to get 6th :cry: :cry: Everything else was correct...

I have a few I can think of lol
Beat the Curve: Road Scholar Regionals 2014 (4th), Green Generation Regionals 2015 (1st)
Uncontested: Meteorology States 2016 (1st), I heard my partner and I got ~30 points more than the 2nd place team.
'Murica: States 2016 (Reach for the Stars 3rd, Crave the Wave 2nd, Meteorology 1st)
Also, someone on my team this year would have gotten the Rage acheivement... she placed 1st in Astronomy, but the graders ranked the teams in reverse order and ended up giving the 1st place medal to the last place team -_-
