Being a Team Leader

About Being Your School's Team Leader


The primary role of a CKSF Team Leader is to increase awareness of CKSF programs and build a team of participating students at your school.  CKSF Team Leaders fully understand CKSF's methodology and are able to explain such things as registering and quiz scoring to classmates, teachers, and school administrators.  The more students a team leader can get to participate, the more likely it is his or her school and team will become CKSF National Champions!

All students from your school automatically become part of your school's team once they register with CKSF.  For each quiz, the top 20 scores from your school are added together to make up your school's team score.  No individual score can possibly hurt your team score.

*There is no limit to the number of students you can have on your team.

Benefits of Being a Successful Team Leader


Successful team leaders develop a team of at least 20 participating students and promote the program to appropriate teachers and school administrators. During the course of a scholarship competition they actively recognize their school's high scoring students and encourage all students to participate.
