Step 11: PJAS Slides and Practice Presentation
Templates for your Presentation (Slides):
While you may use templates to build your presentation, I do recommend putting your own creativity to work and designing your own. You can use these to make sure you have the important elements of your presentation. Try to make them as interesting, complete, but also concise.
Once you design your slides, please send Mr. Zielen a copy and he'll give you feedback.
These are the actual rubrics that the PJAS judges will use to score your presentation. Please look at the criteria listed under the best score (in your category) and make sure you are meeting each one. Please note: Presentations that exceed the time limit (and 30 second grace period) are automatically lowered one place.
Mr. Zielen has been a sponsor and a judge for PJAS (Regions 2, 9, and 7) for most of his career and has gained a sense of what a majority of judges are looking for. He would like to hear everyone's rehearsed presentation at least once - twice or more if possible.
Please schedule a time to practice your presentation in front of Mr. Zielen. You can even present to one of his classes for practice speaking in front of others. Reach out early to schedule a time to present.
Expect 15-20 minutes for each practice presentation.
- 8-10 for your delivered presentation (Student)
- 5-10 minutes for "judge" questions and advice for improving your slides or presentation (Teacher)
