My first valuable lesson I'd like to share with you is sportsmanship; be a good sport. I learned this at the STN convention because at STN, you need to be a good sport. Meaning, if you see other Middle Schoolers, be fair and be kind to then, and don't treat them bad just because your competing against them. I also learned you need to be a good sport during the closing ceremony. Meaning, when they are announcing the winners, clap for everyone. If you did place, don't insult the other schools and brag about it. Yes, it is a time to be happy but don't run it in their faces. Even if you didn't win, still clap-and don't be a sour lemon about it. Tell your teammates good job, and congratulate other teams that placed. And when you see other schools like Castaic, congratulate them and tell them good job! Being a good sport is very important, not only regarding STN, but regarding everything!
The next valuable lesson I'd like to share with you is to cooperate together. What I mean by this is to work together. When you work together, you can get more done and it makes everyone feel apart. I learned this at the STN convention, we all had to work together when we were competing in the Movie Trailer and Sweet Sixteen broadcast competitions. It's very vital that you work together and get along because if you don't, then everyone will start arguing, thus you won't get anything done and it will go haywire. Cooperating is especially important for Sweet Sixteen Broadcast. As you know, we are all split up into groups that create individual videos, then we give it to the main editor. The main editor then takes all of the groups submitions and puts it into one final video. So if you don't cooperate and get your groups individual video done, you can give it to the main editors. Not cooperating takes a toll and effects not only you.
My last valuable lesson kind of ties together with the previous lesson, make everyone feel apart of the CKTV Ohana. I can't really pinpoint a specific time where I learned this, but I'll say that it was the time spent with the class (I can't elaborate any more sorry). We spent a lot of time together and we all were able to bond with eachother. It's very important to make everyone feel like a whole in this class because if not, not only does it hurt their feelings, but it decreases the ability to cooperate because you might be fighting or arguing. Which then takes an effect on our class. But when you do treat everyone fairly, you develop more friendships with people, which is always good!
Overall, this trip has taught me lots of lessons, but the three most valuable lessons I learned was to be a good sport, cooperate with eachother, and treat everyone fairly, because we are a Ohana. I hope you enjoyed my blog! And make sure you go check out my reflective response, "Fourth Quarter Project" where I tell you about what I will be doing for Fourth Quarter. Thanks for reading! Bye!!
