In addition, these virtual events will continue to provide our students with solid work ethics and valuable life skills such as; public speaking, interview, interpersonal, and teamwork skills.

What will Virtual Student Competitions look like?

As we work to plan these upcoming events, we must take into account the many unknown circumstances that lie ahead. That said, this year’s competitions will be both familiar and a bit different. We are working hard to keep the components of each program in place. The big difference will be, instead of everyone meeting in person to compete, students, coaches, judges and parents will all be meeting virtually.

That means that our competitions will be moving to online platforms that will host registration, video conferencing, scoring and so forth. We will be much more reliant on technology to bring us together and provide us with feedback.

Student Competitions Virtual Setup Guide:

One thing we know for sure is that video conferencing will play a huge role in bringing us together. So we have prepared the VIRTUAL Student Competitions Setup Guide Looking your best in cyberspace, to help you look and perform your best.
