What is a Discussion Meet?
- Participants prepare thoughtful responses to questions that are provided in advance.
- On the day of the competition, participants take part in one round of discussion with 4-6 competitors before judges and an audience. Four participants will advance to the final round.
- Participants are judged on Problem Solving, Analysis of Topic, Cooperative Attitude, Delivery, Opening Statement and Closing Statement. The Discussion Meet is intended to simulate a committee meeting and building consensus and problem solving is very important to this competition.
- The winner and runner up will be determined by the judges after the final round. All competitors will be recognized during the Awards Program on Friday evening at the SCFB Annual Convention. Participants will take home $75 each for their participation, the Final Four will take home $250 each, and the winner will take home the EZ-GO Golf Cart and a $500 STIHL gift certificate, in addition to the expense-paid trips.
*Please note that the winner of the competition must be willing to attend the AFBF National Convention in Nashville in order to take home the SCFB YF&R Discussion Meet prize.
