3rd place winner

Yesterday,Saturday Feburary 25 2017, I got 3rd place in track 3 when, this was my very first time doing D.I. Me and my team had just came back from dinner, all waiting to hear the awards ceremony. This was our very first time doing D.I. and we got a medal. Our coach,Ms. Julee, was so proud of us as we made it on the stage to get our medals. When we got there we saw Ms. Pickett. She is one of the G.A.T.E.S. teachers at my school. I hope to  impress my teacher and Mrs. Forbes, another G.A.T.E.S. teacher.We all are going to show off our medals and shirts at school tomorrow! Me and my team want to show our friends proof that we won 3rd place,in track 3. Me and my team did really well on our actual performance. There is an instant challenge and a performance. Snehal, is on my team,  has a brother  who won,1st place in track 3 with us. I am really suprised because Snehal’s brother’s and my team are both from Beck elementary, and we both won medals.  I wonder if the teams are going to be on announcements tomorrow because,that wil be exciting and will impress others.It also will be exciting because they might tell the whole school our scores and,congratulate us.

Even if I wanted us to win first place, I am really glad that  we won something. I wonder if they will let the teams go do an assembely in front of the school. Who knows? Maybe so maybe not!

Just on Monday both teams had to wear their medals and team shirts to show what we wore and proof that we on medals.  Then today,Tuesday, my teacher shared my Destination Imagination video to the whole class. Everyone liked it A LOT! This is so because ,at the end everyone started asking me questions about it. Also because everyone was diying to see it. Even the boys! On Saturday, the awards ceremony went from 7 to 8p.m. Even if there were only 2 teams from N.I.S.D. ,they made us sit in the back for the ceremony. At the beginning they started announcing awards for different challenges until, they finally did scientific. I held my breath and,crossed my fingers as I waited patiently. ” 3rd place goes to, Team Bubble Pop!” ” Yyyyyyyeeeeeeeessssssssss!” We went up to the stage,hearts beating faster and faster until we reached the stage. We all waited  patiently to get our medals. I burst into tears of joy as I walkeddown to the stage. This was my greatest achievement, and the most happiest day of my life! Even if I was hoping to get first place, I did a great job. I would give credit to me,Haylie,Jenna, Snehal, and Ms. Julee. We all worked super hard and also were determined to win. I am so glad that I got third place.

 Now I know how hard you have to work to get a prize. This was all our very first time, except Snehal’s, and we got 3rd place. I am glad that Mrs.Forbes put us on the same team because,we couldn’t have done this project without each other and also because we all work together very well. Our brains all think  alike and I think we were meant to be working together!
