What is the
The Amazing Shake is a competition that places an emphasis on teaching students manners, discipline, respect, and professional conduct. Students learn the nuances of professional human interaction as they are taught skills such as how to give a proper handshake, how to “work a room,” how to give a successful interview, and how to remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare our students so that they are able to present themselves exceptionally well for opportunities today as well as those that will come in the future.
The 3-day competition consists of case-scenario stations set up around the school that every student must pass through while exercising etiquette, composure and savoir-faire. Top performers advance to the next level of challenges until there is ultimately one overall global champion!
The Amazing Shake Global Competition is open to any student in the 4th-8th grade during the 2023-2024 school year. Schools are encouraged to have local Amazing Shake competitions and to send their top performers to Global. The Global Amazing Shake is hosted at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, GA.
