What will it look like? Be at your event at least 30 minutes before Large room with everyone in it One row per event You will be called by event name or prep time Guide to seat (Role plays taped to table) Then guided to Judges room
How to use your “prep time”! Begin by reading and “Charting” as you go. – You can’t write on the paper so just chart on separate sheet Answer Key Main Questions to Yourself – What is it about? – Who are you? Who are they? – What is the Issue? Respond to the issue, but target the “Performance Indicators” One by One
Dealing with Performance Indicators Simplify the performance indicators for yourself On your scrap paper…Use these simplified performance indicators as Heading/Titles Write at least 2 to 3 ideas for each If only one? Then find a way to drag it out to make it sound longer
Key Words of Performance Indicator Here Try to have 3 bullet points No more than 7 words Put title in all CAPS or make stand out Add a drawing if time Present in order
After finishing with your last PI, but before Judge’s ? And you thanking the judge We believe if we target the issue by doing…”summarize your ideas”….we will be successful Keeping all these ideas in mind we should be successful in….”addressing the said role play issue” and receive the best results. If we follow these steps than we will be able to achieve the desired results!
Practice what you will say!!! Use about half the time to practice perfecting your speech You want to say the key words of the performance indicators at least 2-3 times to make sure the judge hears you. Add a way to end your speech/presentation
How to present in front of a judge? Smile on the way to the judge Proper Hand shake and introduction – Pleasure to meet you. I am Hector Reyes. May I sit down and begin the role play? Begin with “Thank you for having me today sir to talk about this very important issue…. Eye Contact, but not too much Throw in your ending Thank the judge for their time
