Congratulations to all of the Sub-state Tournament participants who worked so hard to present creative solutions to their Challenges. We look forward to seeing your improved solutions at the State Tournament on April 14, 2012. All teams in Iowa do advance to the State Tournament, unless:
- they do not have a trained Appraiser who also served at Sub-state this season
- they made no visible effort toward a viable solution at the Sub-state Tournament
- they are disqualified because of Interference in Instant Challenge (discussing their Instant Challenge with non-team members before Global Finals), or
- they choose not to advance.
Special congratulations go to the elementary Silver Starz team from St. Albert School (Team 112-11552), which earned a Spirit of Discovery & Imagination Award. According to the Appraisal team for Challenge E, Elementary Level, there was an error in weighing that would have greatly helped this team, but the Team Manager and the entire team said that wouldn’t be fair or right, and wanted a re-do on weighing. The Appraisal team felt this attitude reflects the true meaning of fairness and sportsmanship, and the Spirit of DI. The Spirit of Discovery & Imagination Award is offered to those who act as superior role models in the areas of spirit, sportsmanship and volunteerism. Way to go, Silver Starz!
If your team placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in your Challenge and Level, but was unable to accept your award because you had to leave the Tournament early, you can pick up the individual awards at the Sales & Registration table at the State Tournament.
