After a long awards ceremony, we went out to dinner and back to the hotel. Here is the team with their various awards. NSHS was named a "School of Honor" in Speech.
The non-seniors have been taking their world language (French & Spanish) exams at the hotel.
Everyone else has been at the convention center, watching final rounds.
Aidan broke to semi-finals in impromptu. The round is at 6:00 pm (Utah time).
We got up early this morning (again) and headed up to Sandy, Utah. It's about a 25 minute drive from downtown Salt Lake City. So far, all of the NSHS students who started competing this morning are still "in". The rounds don't last long and there's a lot of wait-time between them, so we've been sitting in the cafeteria - a lot.
So, here's where we stand at the moment:
Jason just advanced to round 7 of Extemporaneous Debate
James & Aidan are in round 2 of Impromptu
Shira & Rhea are in round 2 of Storytelling
As of 4:30 pm, the only NSHS team members still in competition are Winson, James & Jason in Extemporaneous Debate and Aidan, who is currently in his second semi-final round.
Everyone else is out.
Tomorrow morning, we start consolation events.
