I can't give the particulars, but suffice it to say, my daughter placed 3rd at the state level in a national essay contest.
The nut doesn't fall far from the tree, eh? ;o)
As far as I know, she doesn't actually win anything, but she finished ahead of almost 900 other kids in Colorado. I'll get the details when we receive her O-fficial letter next week. We may even get to go to the awards ceremony. Plus, it'll look great on her college applications. Yay.
