Local or regional activity?
D21 is filling out college application and it asks her to list the level of each activity. is local, district, regional, state or national? In most cases, she was in a club or team locally that competed with other teams in the region so I am thinking it is regional? For example-Cross Country (did not advance to state), Science Bowl, MathLeague, Robotics (competed with others in region but did not advance to state) National Honor Society? Would you consider this a local club or national? It seems to me to be a local chapter of a national club so I think list as local?1 replies
