The Beginning of Sound

Toyplayer chose the "Website" category in 2012 to present his topic, Silent to Sound: How Sound Revolutionized the Movie-Going Experiencein the National History Day competition in Washington, D.C.

Toyplayer's mom found an “interesting Jacksonville connection” when helping him do the research for his project that NHD wasn't even going to consider but did only because his mom made them as he had won the year before in a different category.

The interesting Jacksonville connection isn't that Toyplayer's mom asked me to critique his website about 10 times because I couldn't tell her that his website is just not that interesting.

I assume Toyplayer didn't win anything because the topic was "too ambitious" for the category he chose in which to present it.
