2019 Moment Maker Tip #1

We are two weeks away from our own qualifier competition. Our team wants to take this time to share our “Moment Maker” tips for this year with other teams to help them prepare for their own competitions. We will be sharing multiple tips throughout the next two weeks. During this time, we will take a break from our normal blog posts, so that our team can focus on preparing ourselves for our own competition. Good luck to all the teams! We will still be reading our “contact us” page, if you have any questions or comments for us.

The best part of tournaments is being able to share all of your hard work with other teams and the community! Remember to have fun sharing all you've learned! Take the time to talk to other teams to learn about their accomplishments, too!
