I had no idea what to expect.
All the honorable mentions were called, then 5th place, then 4th place, then 3rd place - still didn't hear his name. Then second place was called, and I figured he hadn't won anything. Certainly he wasn't 1st . . .
. . . and then they called his name!
That was 6 years ago, and he has won the individual competition at his level every year since - by a wide margin - including this morning in his final event: calculus.
He, of course, won't tell anyone, but I'm his mom, and I'm gonna brag on him! I'm hoping for great things in the future when he takes on the Putnam Competition in college.
His team also won the "Bomb" today, which is a really cool 5-person event. Up top are some of the problems that appeared on his tests today (in case you'd like to give them a try!) and below are pictures of the competition.This is the Bomb team at work.Anthony focused on his work.First place in calculus!With the other calculus winners -
- and with the bomb team winners.
WAY TO GO ANTHONY! WAY TO GO ENOCHS! SOAR EAGLES SOAR!
