I was very disappointed with the Ed-Tech story congratulating the winners at the National Competition. I do not know any of the students that went to the competition however there was hardly a mention about the silver medalist, Erik O'Connor of Almont.
I finished reading the article and wondered, "what about the silver medalist," what was his story? Where was the recognition that was g iven to the bronze medalist?
It is my understanding this young man finished overall 2.4 points out of first place (out of 1000 points) and finished first in the duct work building portion of the competition. This seems to be quite an accomplishment and deserves to be recognized more than just his name being casually mentioned in the article. This may have been the first silver medal the school has ever won.
Why wasn't this student or the instructor or the school contacted to obtain this information so it could have been included in the article, along with the information on the bronze medalist?
A little more effort should have been made on your part to give more recognition to a student who worked hard and did a great job.
