So as some of you may know, this is my first full run through as Administrator. I came on just before the finals last year, so I am finally seeing the process as a whole and is it ever exciting! I have never sent more emails or talked to more people in my life! There is so much to coordinate and so much to plan, and I could not love it more. The excitement I feel being able to create this amazing competition and bring people from all over the globe together is a truly humbling experience for myself. Hopefully this is not the case is your part of the world, but here in the United States there is sadly still a large contingent of people that do not believe humans have a negative impact on the planet. This is truly depressing to hear because it comes of as a willful ignorance to the situation at hand. So, it is great to have a response from all corners of the globe, showing that an understanding of our current environmental struggle is understood everywhere, even if not by everyone.
So thats my update for today, registrations are rolling in and soon enough so will the paper submissions. I cannot wait to see all the amazing ideas you all have planned!
