The day leading to the championship for the History Bowl competition was a stressful one for our daughter. She really wanted to do good so she was stressing out and was working hard to pack her brain with so much information.
We went a day early at Charleston so that she could at least relax before the day of the final competition. We encouraged her to have a good night sleep but I can tell that she did not sleep that long. I know I couldn't sleep myself as well thinking about it, I was nervous for her.
Nevertheless, she was optimistic and hoping for the best. This is the morning of the competition. We woke up early and had breakfast at the hotel and got ready to go to the venue.
I thought we arrived early but it seems like everybody was there already lol. While waiting for the competition to start, we had a lot of time to spend for taking photos and review some more.
I am not sure if it's the nerve that kicking in but our daughter can't remember some of the information that she knew before this day.
This was taken during the first elimination round. They won and advanced to to the next round. They scored 38 while the other school scored 20.
Below is the video of the first elimination round which was set for ten minutes. I was so nervous that this video is so shaky lol.
They finished 9th place out of 24 teams so it wasn't a bad result. Taking our son with us and watching the event inspired him. He said he wants to do it too when he's in 8th grade so we saved all of our daughter's study material. All we have to do is update the political info next time if there are changes. Our daughter said she would be will to help coach.
