Hey Everyone! Speaking for myself, today was a fun and happy day. We first went to the Closing Ceremony, then to Gatorland, and then to Downtown Disney! After some tickling and giggles, I finally woke up at 8. We ate breakfast then got ready for the...Closing Ceremony...DUN..DUN..DUN. We arrived to the closing ceremony and everyone was pumped. There was projectors that displayed flashing lights and music that got everyone excited. They announced all of the awards for the Middle School competition. CKTV competed in Spot Feature, PSA, Music Video, Anchoring, Commercial, Movie Trailer and Sweet Sixteen. The Spot Feature team is brought home 1st place, with their prompt: "Making It Look Easy". Good Job to Leanna, Brandon, and Kaden for their amazing video! I would like to congratulate the PSA team that consisted of Justice, Isabel, Dalson, and Kaycee. They got honorable mention with their prompt, "The Golden Rule". It's pretty coincidental because for one of the practice's their prompt was also "The Golden Rule". Music Video team, Lindsey, Kelli, Nicole, Javlynn placed 2nd with the song "Runaway", Awesome job guys! And Marlena and Haven also placed 2nd in the anchoring category. Unfortunately, some teams didn't place, but still, they did a great job and I know they put a lot of effort towards their video. We also won 2nd for Sweet Sixteen broadcast! I was very happy, as I was apart of that team. Overall, the CKTV class will be brining home 5 awards of 7 total competitions. We sat with all of the Hawaii schools and cheered for everyone. Sitting with the Hawaii schools was probably the best and my most favorite part of STN. We cheered so loud, and chanted "Hawaii" even louder! I think I can speak for everyone that we represented the 808 well. I'm very proud to be apart of the CKTV class and be from Hawaii. After the ceremony, we took some photos and alsou a group photo with all the Hawaii schools. We then went to Gatorland. We saw alligators and crocodiles, and watched shows such as Gator Wrestling. However, he didn't really 'wrestle' the gator. Instead, he grabbed it and showed us some things about the gator. I learned the difference between an alligator and a crocodile. It turns it's the spout and the noses! They also showed us something pretty weird, yet unique. The alligators eyes go into it's body when it senses something near. We said "See Ya Later, Alligators" and got a choice between Premium Outlets or Downtown Disney. I chose Downtown Disney, but in the end, I think I made the wrong decision. I didn't really buy anything from Downtown Disney, just a couple of magnets. We also got to eat dinner there, at this restaurant known for their "greatest hot sandwiches". Knowing this, of course, most people got soup. But not me, I got an avocado sandwich-without avocado. I know it sounds a bit crazy...but they do allow it. We arrived back to the hotel and finished packing because we leave the next day. Byee!!
