From that point on, I had an idea of what might be happening since she had entered me into the Google Science Fair. As she started describing the Google Science Fair experience, my Kappa League brothers presented a wrapped box with my initials on it. I opened it and read the letter out loud, saying that I was the winner of the DC Google Science Fair. It was really a surprise because even though they had shared the results with teachers and parents, I only found out about it at this ceremony.
It was really cool for multiple reasons, and I had always wanted to go to California; I had never been that far from home for that long.
