FAQ’S

What can a product be?

What counts toward the twenty hours?

*Time spent with your mentor and time spent actually working on your product

How do I prove that I spent twenty hours on my product?

*Student logs and mentor logs

*20 hour verification sheet signed by your mentor

 

What am I expected to turn in on the day the physical product is due?

Constructed items

Bring in the item and a display board showing you working in every phase of construction. Include pictures of you working with your mentor. In addition, you may bring in a video. Consider the size of your item.  Even extremely large items will need to be brought to school for judging and for your presentation.

Events

You must bring a display board showing you in all phases of organizing the event. You must include your flyer, sign-up sheets, donation sheets, receipt of donation for fundraisers, and any certificates of recognition you may have earned. Include a picture of you working with your mentor. You may bring in a video in addition to your board.

Instruments

Bring a display board showing you as you learn and demonstrate the skill. In the case of piano, you may bring in a video of you playing, but you will need to bring in a key board to demonstrate to the judges what you have learned.  Include pictures of you working with your mentor. For product day and presentations, you will need to actually play your instrument.

Public speeches/sermons

Bring in a display board showing you working with your mentor and working on your speech. Include pictures of you and your audience at the event. In addition, you may bring in a video. Notes, rough drafts, evidence of planning, and your final text must be turned in with your board.

New skills

You will bring in a display board showing you with your mentor as you learn. You will need to make sure that you document what you do every step of the way with photographs. A video may be submitted in addition to your board.* If you have a project dealing with the medical field, it is expected that you actually spend time in a medical facility. If you can’t take pictures with people, you can at least take pictures of you and the equipment.

Cooking

You will bring in a board with pictures of you working with your mentor throughout the process. You may also bring in a video. For the product due date AND the presentation, you will need to bring in samples. Also, you will complete a mandatory business portfolio. Complete meals should consist of at least three courses. If your focus is on a single course such as desserts, you should have at least three different types.

 

Projects will be set up in the library for judging on your due date. Everyone will have a display board and product. In addition, each person will have his or her portfolio by the product opened to the mentor logs and twenty-hour verification sheet. Anyone having a video will need to attach a form to your board to direct judges to the computer. I will keep your boards and small products that can be easily stored, but large products need to be removed by the end of the day.
