This year I was chosen with a couple of my other friends to participate in the Grade 8 American Math Contest. Personally, I was very excited to write the contest, but when I flipped through the test I was a bit nervous. When I finished the contest I was relieved and thought I did the best that I could. After the contest we talked about it and all of us had a lot of fun. When we received our marks I felt very proud of myself and learned a lot from this great experience.
