    Hi all...
    I've been discouraged for a while to resubmit application for DYS program for my DD who is now 10 in 5th grade.
    She's not in last year, but the family consultant encouraged us to submit all work samples again. I've been dragging my feet do it all over again because it's a long process of application.
    But now I'm in the process of collecting all her portfolio and work samples plus DVD which I didn't do when I submitted my 1st application last year.
    This school year has been great so far for my DD and her teachers willing to give me letter recommendations.
    What do you guys think I should submit for DVD? She is well above grade level ability in writing. Should I record her while she is doing her writing?
    Recently she won Gold Medal in Science Fair for her category Health Science among charter schools against Midwest states. Do you think it's a good idea to submit her science fair presentataion in the camera? She had to do presentation explanation her project..maybe I can do that??
    Any input greatly appreciated.

    We're debating whether or not to apply for DYS, so I don't have any experience with the process, but I think a writing sample and a video of her explaining her science project would be useful. Perhaps rather than recording her writing, you could record her discussing her inspiration for her writing or the process she goes through?

    Good for you for overcoming discouragement! All those ideas sound wonderful. Good Luck and remember that being 'near YSP' is very unusual in and of itself!

    Love and More Love,
    Grinity
