Amazing Shake Competition at Bristow Elementary

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Local elementary school students are learning manners, discipline, respect and professional conduct in a competitive way.

Earlier today, Bristow Elementary School held The Amazing Shake, a four round competition designed to teach 5th & 6th grade students professional interaction like how to give a proper handshake and basic interview skills.

The goal is to prepare the students to present themselves for opportunities in the future.

Bristow Elementary Principal Chris Stunson says the students were judged by the acronym SPECIAL, which means shake their hand, posture, eye contact, charm or personality, an introduction, asking a question and leaving in a timely manner.

Students are also really excited to improve their professional skills through organizations such as Boys to Men, Leading Ladies and GT Leadership.

The winning students will advance to the national competition in March of 2024 in Atlanta.local n
