Hello Florida DECA!
With competition rolling in, I am very excited to review some of my favorite competition tips. Tip #1 – Remain flexible. Be prepared to walk into competition and be stunned by your judge. Remember, every judge is different so you have to be prepared to make adjustments depending on the way things go. I recommend practicing with many different people to get the hang of it. Tip #2 – Creativity is key. You have to stand out among your competition. One of the best ways is to be creative. Consider adding some visual elements to your presentation to spice things up. Tip #3 – OWN IT! No matter what, you have to always have confidence, even when you feel wrong. The judges like to see your passion for the role and the project. Tip #4 – Celebrate Success. After every role play, be proud of your accomplishment. You and your friends in DECA will continue to grow if you make the most out of competing. Just have fun with it!
