“What do you love most about yourself?”
This was the conversation starter for one of the 240 Dallas ISD students who competed in the inaugural round of the Amazing Shake Competition at City Lab High School on Nov. 10. The competition focused on tie-breaking life skills such as a firm handshake, eye-contact, and back-and-forth communication. More than 120 volunteers from businesses throughout Dallas participated as judges.
Each judge received a bag with five ballots that were used to score each student. On Monday, Nov. 13, after all ballots are tallied, the top five shakers from each campus will be announced to advance to the next round of the competition. Future rounds of the competition will include public speaking, table etiquette and debate.
