Kade competed in music memory, ready writing, spelling and oral reading. He did not place in ready writing. He also did not place individually in music memory, but as a team Seymour won 2nd place. Spelling, in my opinion, is not one of his stronger attributes, but we worked hard at it. He actually was alternate, but ended up on the team when a little boy got sick the night before competition. The team placed first! Oral reading is his favorite event and he won first place in it. So, in all Kade received 3 medals!
If you are not familiar with UIL most of the events allow each school to enter 3 students, so Kade was competing against 17 others in ready writing, spelling and oral reading. Music memory allows 5 or 6 students per school.
The day before UIL competition Kade's oral reading coach/teacher had them perform at a Chamber of Commerce meeting. The parents were allowed to attend too!
Here Kade is on the day of competition. All smiles and ready to go!
Daddy and I are very proud of you, Kade.
