Q: Can our team present on more than one (1) project?
A: Teams at the Spring Youth Forum must present on one project (although the "project" may involve multiple "tasks"). Presentations should involve one project. "Project" may include more than one event/task; that is, in order to achieve a project goal, you may have more than one event, but all of the events assist in the desired outcome for the project. Finally, remember you only have a short time to present so be sure to be clear, concise, and focused (e.g. discuss and give examples regarding the project goal, objectives, description, outcomes, impact, etc.).
Q: What is the maximum amount of time for our team presentation?
A: 8 minutes
Q: Does our team have to create an electronic presentation (e.g. PPT)?
A: No, this is not a requirement. Please feel free to create presentations that suit the team’s personality and the audience; such as: skits, group work, interactive presentations, singing, music, discussion, drama etc. Electronic (for example, PowerPoint, Adobe PDF) formats for presentations are NOT a requirement. For more details on audio visual, please see "Does Your Team Have Special Presentation Need?" on the Presentation webpage.
Q: Will our team be competing this year?
A: No, teams will not be competing this year. However, teams will be sharing their stories with other teams and have the opportunity to add skills, resources and knowledge to their toolkit by attending the Spring Youth Forum.
