The Q before I received a semi. The last quarter before KW passed.

SHMs were a new thing back then. I started entering when they used to call HMs quarter finalists. Made things a little confusing so they changed it to HM.

Oh man, quarter finalist does sound fancier than honorable mention. 


Anyone else reading persistence as Tevya singing Tradition?

It was a bit confusing or disheartening if you choose. Because finalists were still finalists and a quarter finalist sounds like a finalist for the quarter.
