World Festival Tip: Be Memorable

Imagine how hard it is for FLL judges to link all the amazing information presented in judging sessions to the right team.  They take notes and write comments during the presentation and Q&A, but how will they remember YOUR team, in particular.  Here are a few ideas:
  • Write and rehearse a catchy cheer that highlights the main focus of your project and links it with your team name/number.  As you are packing up and leaving the judging room, leave singing your song or chant!
  • Leave a button, a pamphlet, a creative representation of your project (a mini prototype, a PR giveaway, etc.) as you head out of the session.  Have your youngest member ask the judges to use this item to remember your team - we call this the "cuteness factor".
  • Leave a team photo with the top three things you want the judges to remember about you listed on the photo.
