ETHICAL DILEMMA- team

In this competition, the chapter must debate the assigned ethical education-related dilemma. This competition requires members to think deeply about an ethical issue, employ critical-thinking skills, and use persuasive communication techniques to collaboratively debate an ethical dilemma. To participate, each member of the chapter must first thoroughly consider the ethical issue and begin to form an individual position on the topic. Then the chapter members must debate the topic together, listening carefully to each other’s opinions. Through the discussion, the chapter members must come to a consensus on the topic and then prepare a 10-minute live presentation stating their chapter’s view. The chapter must work as a team to develop the live, 10-minute presentation and then select at least two and no more than four students from the chapter to present the chapter’s opinion and how it was reached to a panel of judges at the National Conference. 

​*VIRTUAL SUBMISSION- students will need to record their presentation.

JOB INTERVIEW- individual

The Job Interview Competition is an opportunity for Educators Rising members to develop and practice their interview skills, as well as cover letter and résumé writing skills. In this competition, entrants apply for a position as a paraprofessional (a link to position description can be found below). This includes submitting a cover letter explaining why the entrant is a good candidate for the position, as well as a résumé that details relevant work, volunteer, and educational experiences. Judges will review the cover letters and résumés and — just like any job application/interview process —candidates will be interviewed for a paraprofessional position.
