We bring out the best in others.

Why an awards page?

We're proud of the opportunities we provide students to show commitment, develop resilience, and become part of a larger community through public performances. Not all of our families participate in extracurricular competitions. Some are just here to build their confidence, credibility, and creativity as writers and speakers. We understand that gold medals, which are earned in always subjective and often unpredictable competitions, should not come before growth. That's why we celebrate the efforts of all students who overcome their fears and share their messages.

We've listed (1) sweepstakes/team awards (which, since many of our students compete under their school's name instead of our team's name, are particularly challenging for academies like ours to win), (2) full results from national championship tournaments to reflect the tremendous accomplishment of placing at those competitions (which can include thousands of original entrants), (3) awards from our most recent season of competition, and (4) bids (which represent placements at top competitions).

This only includes students who (A) primarily compete under ModernBrain’s name or (B) consult with our coaches regularly.
