Webbies enjoy the Bed Wars competition as they play games amongst each other.

Over the weekend, Webb hosted a myriad of activities, events, and competitions as a part of  WebbDay. The festivities lasted two days, with seven main events, and one additional event. These events were hosted by the class leaders, and any Webbie could sign up. 

Covid-19 has caused many  Webb traditions to be put on hold. The community does not feel the same as it usually does, and it has been hard to connect with students on the other side of the world. Webb has set up many online events in hopes of bringing together the community in good time. On March 19th and 20th, Webb held one of these events.

Two students from each class, four from each grade in total, competed to win for their class. The rules for each game could be found on STAS Friday, March 19th. If a student did not wish to compete, or just were not able to, they were invited to spectate and cheer on their friends. 

 “I enjoyed WebbDay a lot,” said Etienne Griffon (‘23). “It was cool to interact with other students, especially with the freshmen because it was my first-time meeting some of them. If Webb hosts another event like this, I would be sure to sign up for it.”
 On Friday the 19th, Jeopardy was the first event to be held from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Students from each grade and class got together to answer questions and bond with each other. 

The next game that Webbies partook in that day was Music Trivia from 7:00pm-7:30pm. This game allowed Webbies to get into teams to answer questions relating to music and musicians.  

After music trivia, from 7:30pm-8:30pm, was the scavenger hunt and bingo. Webbies were confused on how a scavenger hunt was going to work online, but it ended up being a big success, with students having a lot of fun. 

 The last event played that day was Minecraft Bedwars Championship. This was the most popular activity, and people enjoyed it a lot. 

 The first event to be held that day was Minecraft Bedwars Championship. This event was held on March 20th, 6:00pm-7:00pm. Webbies got together in teams of four to win it all. 

Following the Minecraft Bedwars Championship was the Jackbox, which was from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Student enjoyed facing off against each other in the competition. They would play from a selection of games and try to win in every minigame they played. 

The last live event of that day was a League of Legends faceoff between the classes from 8:15pm-9:15pm. Each grade was their own separate team, and they played league of legends with the intent of being named the winners. 

There was also a bonus activity, which was the Webb bake-off. Webbies had until Thursday, March 25th, to submit a picture of their cookie with the most creative name. 

“I had a really great time,” said Aidan Helgeson ‘23. “I signed up for the Bedwars Competition with some of my friends, and it was a great experience. I also really enjoyed reconnecting with some of the upper classmen, who I haven’t been able to do in recent times, as well as meet of the new freshmen. I would love for Webb to set up more of these events, but maybe hold more than one game at a time. I know a couple of people who were a little bummed because they were not able to sign up for the activity they wanted.” 

Webb has discussed holding more of these events towards the end of the year. Many students who took part in this event enjoyed it very much and wished to see more of these activities towards the end of the year.. The activities that Webb held to bring together the community in these times were great fun, and the perfect way to bring together all grades and classes.
