THE AMAZING SHAKE™ NATIONAL COMPETITION
The Amazing Shake is a competition that places an emphasis on teaching students manners, discipline, respect, and professional conduct. Prior to the competition, students learn the nuances of professional human interaction as they are taught skills such as how to give a proper handshake, how to “work a room,” how to give a successful interview, and how to remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare our students so that they are able to present themselves exceptionally well for opportunities today as well as those that will come in the future.
The Amazing Shake National Competition is open to any student in the 5th-8th grade during the 2018-19 school year. Schools are encouraged to have local Amazing Shake competitions and to send their top performers to Nationals. Districts are also encouraged to conduct district-level competitions with the winners from local schools.
District-level winners of the Amazing Shake receive a bye during the first round competitions in Atlanta. The number of students sent by a school or school district is up to their discretion.
Note: Students who do not qualify for subsequent rounds will attend workshops that will be conducted by experts in the field of etiquette, professional interactions and the keys to success.
There must be 1 adult chaperone for every 5 students. Chaperones will have the opportunity to watch 2 of the competition rounds. The other rounds will be closed sessions.
Registration will open in the spring of 2018. The cost of registration is $350 for both students and chaperones. Please check back for more details.
