==Writing==
 
Melanie has written for various packet submission tournaments, including 2011 and 2012 [[MUT]] submissions, some questions from which survived and were used in the actual tournament. She also contributed to the failed [[ACF Nationals]] packet submission with [[Eliza Grames]], [[Han Li]], and [[Peter Estall]] that was never submitted due to an awful 14-line short story on the Battle of Bannockburn written by [[Peter Estall]] and a lack of funds to attend the tournament.
 
 
 
She contributed numerous fine arts, myth, and social science questions to the 2011 iteration of the [[Minnesota High School Novice Tournament]]. For the 2012 version of MHSNT, she will be serving as a subject editor for mythology, visual arts, and probably some other categories at her whim.
 
 
 
Her most impressive writing accomplishment is bound to be [[Never Say Never: Anything Goes]] - an awful trash tournament that she is co-writing with [[Eliza Grames]] to be played in Fall 2013.
 
 
 
==Leadership==
 
Melanie served as tournament director for the Minnesota mirror of 2011 [[Fall Novice Tournament]] and brought in a solid number of teams to compete in that.
 
 
 
* 2012-2013 [[Minnesota]] Special Events Coordinator for Spring '13 after returning from study abroad and taking over the position from [[Shannon Fletcher]].
