As far as the HP contest, the school that won the 100 calculators is mentioned in the Scholastic Instructor Magazine from last month. I looked at a copy of it. If you want a great laugh, find a copy of it. It is hilarious.
The article is surrounded by pictures of student's calculators. I was looking at some. One looks like a pen and has 6 buttons (numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6) I thought it was a base 7 calculator, until i noticed there was no 0. They spotlighted several calculators, and the elementary and middle school grand prize winners. Then, in size 10 font, under the title "Runners Up" was my name. I wasn't too pleased.
So, in conclusion, if you want to know the other winners, or you just want a good laugh, go and find a copy of Scholastic's Instructor Magazine.
oh, BTW Tony, one of the runners up for the high school level was also from Texas (George West to be exact). I wonder if he does UIL.
