College Exploration Competition

VIKING LOUNGE (ground floor)

About the College Exploration Competition:

Excited about a particular college? What would make a student want to attend a certain college or university? Market this opportunity to others!

The competitor will develop a visual display (tri-fold board, power-point, weebly, video, etc.) through an artistic medium. Students will express ideas that highlight the benefits of a particular school of focus. The purpose of the College Exploration Competition is to encourage students to research and analyze information about a specific college or university.

Competition Procedure:

  1. The visual display must be presented by the competitor who created the display with only one college or university to be presented.
  2. The visual display should be completed prior to the competition. You will have fifteen (15) minutes to assemble the visual display when you arrive.
  3. Competitors will be assigned a time to present. A five (5) minute prepared presentation is required. Presentations must include the relationship of students’ interests, aptitudes and abilities to the chosen college/university. Judges will rate the overall display based on:
    • How well the information was documented,
    • The presenter’s ability to communicate information,
    • The display’s focus area.
  4. The competitor will be asked a minimum of three (3) questions which will take approximately five (5) minutes.

A completed College Exploration Entry Form MUST be submitted to the Student Leadership Conference coordinators by April 4, 2017.
