Short Session Description (one line): Winning a competition is "Icing on the Cake", but the learning and connecting with others is the best part of competing!
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Entering your students in competitions takes on new meaning when you tell your students that you are not entering the competition to win, you are entering to learn, and winning is icing on the cake. There are many ways to make social connections while competing, if you dig to find them. We will be looking at competitions your students can attend and competitions that are held online and how you can encourage your students to connect with others.
