If you did our Phase 1, you should have it ●Kingwood HS Address: 2701 Kingwood Drive, Kingwood, TX 77339
Suggestions/Recommendations ●If your event requires a team, you should have already had a study group made. Gather every week until Competition, practice, study and judge each other on your knowledge, skill, and presentation. ●Read thoroughly through your event guidelines; make sure you understand all the requirements to your event. ●At this point, you should be basically completely finished with the information you need if your event requires a presentation, continue to practice PRESENTING. If your event requires only studying, then continue to STUDY. ●For Presenters: Do not be nervous, judges want you to do well, they are on your side. They want to give you as many points as you can have (they are teachers). ●Come in with confidence and extra-friendliness ●Greet and shake the judges hand when entering and leaving (depending on your event) but do not mention your name or school. ●At Area, stick together, Kingwood HS is a large school, you do not want to get lost and not participate and be disqualified from your event. You will have time to look for your event room. ●Have FUN & ask an officer or Ms Clark for any questions! Only ONE month left.
What We Expect We know we will be on your best behavior, but here is a few tips: ●Opening and Closing Ceremony are professional events, feel free to applaud and cheer, but be respectful and applaud at the appropriate times ●DRESS CODE is a must ●Mrs. Clark will be working an event most of Friday, so we will be under the authority of chaperones ●Bring snacks, a jacket, and things to occupy your time, we will have long periods of sitting in our assigned room ●If your competition is on Friday ONLY, then you are not required to come the next morning. However we would like for everyone to be there at 4 pm for awards (should be done by 7). ●They will be serving us dinner, please be courteous and pick up after yourself ●You must be passing all classes under UIL eligibility requirements to compete
Recap/Feedback For Area Competition: 1.Who has not studied? 2.Should we have after school practice for help, studying and presenting? 3.(A-Day) Eat together at a restaurant (Jason’s Deli)? or eat here at school and not miss school? If we choose to eat at Jason’s, you have to bring your own$$$
