Unit Four: Prepare For Competition or Demonstration

Teams prepare a 5 minute marketing presentation using visuals in communicating as they prepare to present their "prize pizzas" for judging.


  • Provide judges with sufficient scoring sheets with criteria for all teams.
  • Set up a table for judges to set behind and for samples of pizzas from each presenting team presented during their marketing reports. Once teams complete their judging they may watch the remainder of the competition or have another room designated for them to go to and if so have activities set up in that room so they are not just setting idle.
