Metler had to create a story using up to three hand shapes. Not to be confused with hand signs, ha and shape is either “open hand” or “closed hand,” which can have many different signs.

This competition was hosted at Herriman High School with many other schools in the region. Metler practiced for two to three weeks to prepare for this competition. Metler’s favorite part of the competition was being on stage in front of everyone and the whole audience silent sign language clapping instead of traditional clapping.
