Once the students arrived on campus, they had the opportunity to socialize with other students from other neighboring school districts. Soon all of the students took their designated tests. After all tests were completed, the students had the chance to grab a bite to eat from the Subway store that was offered in the Commons Area, or purchase a box of pizza. Afterwards, the most exciting part of the day arrived: the awards. Elba took home three honors; in the Microcomputer Applications category, Tiffany Richards and Harley Sanders both received Honorable Mentions--Tiffany took sixth place and Harley took fourth. Also in the Microcomputer Applications category, Paige Weeks was awarded with second place for her division.
