Your Role:

Your role will be as one of the “hosts” for Classroom Feud: Workplace Edition. We encourage our businesses to send a representative who is comfortable with public speaking. You will be given an opportunity to address the students during the introduction. The “game” questions/answers will relate to TCP award categories and characteristics and you will be given time to comment on why they are important to your organization and overall professional success.

Promotional Items:

You are encouraged, if available, to bring promotional items from your business to distribute to the students. There will be 8 student-volunteers for each presentation. It is your choice to bring enough for the volunteers only, the volunteers and the award winners (+10) or more to distribute to the audience.
