This is my DD first year competing in state (Optionals). She had a good meet (1st on vault!). At the awards I was waiting for the girls to receive something for making state, since they did not receive anything at check in. Well, they did not receive anything. I remember when my daughter was level 4 or 5, we got shirts or water bottles, or something. It ticked me off that these girls worked so hard to qualify and make it to state and if they did not medal (they only went out 50% on each event), they went home empty handed. My daughter was blessed to do as well as she did, but I saw girls crying. As much as we pay to compete gymnastics and compete in state, they could have given them SOMETHING! Is this the norm in every state?
