Shark tank judges

This event allows students to use their speaking/listening skills combined with persuasive techniques to “pitch” a product to a team of judges...or “Sharks”. Much like the hit show “Shark Tank”, local business owners serve as our judges for Honors American Literature students. Our Media Specialists work with students who must have a technology component to their presentation or pitch. Judges rank students according to their creativity, product feasibility, and overall presentation. Sponsors such as Smallcakes, Texas Roadhouse, Jimmy John’s, and Chick-fil-A Valdosta Mall make this event possible and an authentic learning experience for students.

First place winners (Carla Ray and Alexis Silveira) took home a certificate for two free dinners at Texas Roadhouse.

Second place winners (Caleb Chaney and Truman Crow) took home ten dollar gift certificates from Jimmy John’s.

Third place winners (Mackenzie Mann and Joshua Register) took home a free combo meal from Chick-fil-A Valdosta Mall.
