SkillsUSA Vermont 2009

Here are some pictures from the Vermont SkillsUSA day on April 9th, 2009.

Quizbowl playing hacky sack after their Quizbowl win. Video in HD from the new Flip HD.

Yeah they weren’t that good, it’s becuase I’m running the camera rather than playing.

Quizbowl Gold being announced for Cawd. They weren’t that excited because they had known that they had won for about 8 hours already and they were coming down from the sugar high.

Here is the GOLD winning website from Mandrake and Muir.

The design was by mandrake, and the coding was done by Muir. The team was provided only with a couple of videos, pictures and text files; and then asked to create a fully functioning and valid website in 4 1/2 hours. They were provided with 2 logos to chose from but decided that neither fit their design, so Mandrake designed a new cleaner logo for the grind. The website also used flash to embed videos into the site validly and lightbox2 to display images.

So this year cawd will be taking 8 kids (9 if you count Trayah, 10 if you count Cronin as well) to the National SkillsUSA Competition in Kansas city this June.

Congratulations to Stowe, Goodie, Shannon, Sagen, Waters, Griggs, Billings, Williams, Muir and Mandrake for representing Cawd at the Vermont SkillsUSA competition and bringing home 9 medals in total.
