Today, we had breakfast in the room later than we have been having. After breakfast, we went down to get into the closing ceremonies! When we got in we waited for a while, but we started with the first announcements. After 3 or 4 announcements of the winners, they got to the middle school spot feature. First I will tell you that on Thursday night I asked Mr. M if he wanted to see our video then, or if he wanted to see it at the closing ceremonies, which he knows, only the 1st place winner's videos are shown. When they called the honorable mentions, it was not us, I was happy. Then they called third, I was slightly nervous, but still really happy. They called Second place and it was still not us, but I was still happy, but just as nervous. It was now or never, either we placed or didn't at this point. Then after that, something terrible happened. It was so terrible for the other teams in the competition that did not place, and definitely not our place, first! After that we slowly made our way to the PSA team, which won 3rd place, and then our two Crazy 8's teams both got honorable mention. After the closing ceremonies, we went back to the Fashion Valley Mall to get lunch, shop (in my case watch Fast and Furious 7), and then eat dinner. Then, we got ready for tomorrow, the day we leave for home, it's been a great trip, and I will be starting back my weekly blogs, not daily, so come back soon! Bye!
(P.S. I can not find a recording of the STN closing ceremonies right now, but I will check every once in a while for a link to post here so you can see it for yourself.)
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
