LifeSmarts National Tournament

Submitted by Mike Goodless and Paul Arenburg, Co-Advisors to LifeSmarts

Massachusetts was well represented by Milton HS at this year's LifeSmarts National Tournament in San Diego, CA. Milton started strong and after the first four events was ranked fourth out of 34 teams. Facing top teams in buzzer matches Milton scored just 1.5 points short of quarterfinal play.

Individually, Brendan Baker and Anson Yip were recognized for outstanding achievements in their Consumer Rights and Technology categories. Anson Yip won top prize in the individual contest, "Last Smarty Standing". Additionally Anson was awarded a $1000 scholarship for his Safety Smarts presentations to elementary students in the Milton After School program.

The team is already gearing for next year's tests and competitions which will start in September.

We would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to all who helped make our trip to this years Nationals possible!
