Amazing Opportunity on a National Stage (Tuscaloosa City Schools)
Six fifth graders will represent Tuscaloosa City Schools at the national level in the Amazing Shake competition to develop communication skills, teamwork, and professional behavior. The students advanced after three rounds of competition in which they dressed for success, participated in three professional interviews, two team challenges that required leadership and cooperation, a typing assessment, and a written reflection.
Round two saw finalists participate in college interviews on the University of Alabama campus and team up with other students from across Tuscaloosa City Schools to complete more group challenges. In round three, 24 students participated in a short professional internship to test their soft skills in the workplace.
