Many of you will be attending the STN Convention this coming Spring, and let me tell you that it is and feels pretty AWESOME! When I first entered the ballroom there were 3 gigantic screens projecting all the students entering and sitting. The energy levels were really high and it was hard not to act crazy. I was so happy to make it to the mainland in Florida and I ALMOST forgot about winning the awards.
I also experienced a lot of screaming. Every time one of the Hawaii schools won, all of us would scream and yell. The funniest part about this was that almost everyone of the categories had one of our Hawaii schools. Some of the mainland schools became mad, so they tired to out scream us, which made us laugh. (: because there were more of us than them.
I swear my heart literally stopped when our school was called for the Music Video category. Picture this, loud music blaring and the announcers announcing the winners. Two days before the closing ceremony (the day of our competition) Mr. M said to not give up, so I was so surprised that we came in second. Lindsey and I, the editors, had to go up to get the award. I remember seeing Mr. M by the side of the stage showing us the two thumbs up! I was so happy that I could barely sleep!
To me, that was one of the most memorable memory that I have experiences out of my 14 years of this wonderful life. Till next time, Bye!
