About Being Your School's Team Leader
As a CKSF Team Leader, your primary role is to build a team of participating students at your school. The more students at your school that participate, the more likely it is that your school will become CKSF National Champions!
*There is no limit to the number of students you can have on your team.
All students from your school automatically become part of your team during the CKSF registration process. For each quiz, the top scores from your school are added together to make up your school's team score.
*No individual score can possibly hurt your team score.
To be a team leader you must...
- Actively participate in at least 1 quiz (so you know what you are talking about)
- Understand the registration process, quiz taking, and finding individual and team scores
- Participate (bi-weekly) in a Team Leader forum that helps other team leaders around the country
- Identify one subject area teacher at your school to whom we can provide basic CKSF information
- Be able to explain to the students at your school the process of registering with CKSF (rules quiz, etc.)
Successful team leaders develop a team of 5 or more participating students and promote the program to appropriate teachers and school administrators. During the course of a scholarship competition they actively recognize their schools high scoring students and encourage all students to participate?
