Thank you for participating in the 2010 Poultry in Schools Competition. The competition is targeted at primary and high school students and aims to encourage interest in careers in the poultry industry by:
The competition has two categories with different assessment tasks. The Junior Category is designed for students in years 6, 7 and 8. The Senior Category is designed for students in years 9, 10, 11 and 12.
The Junior Category is based on desk-top research and requires the students to present their findings as a data slide-show (PowerPoint presentation).
The Senior Category is based on designing and carrying out a simple trial involving poultry and presenting the results as a report and poster.
The competition concludes with a combined Junior and Senior Presentation and Careers Day held at Roseworthy Campus. At this day, prizes will be presented for the best entries and industry representatives will speak about careers in the poultry industry.
The teacher information session will give you more details about the competition including example trial areas and topics (senior category) and assessment criteria and highlight poultry teaching resources. The session will also be an opportunity to ask questions about how the Poultry in Schools competition can fit into your semester program. The teacher information session is open to all interested teachers, if you are considering participating in the competition this year or not. Even if you are unable to participate in the competition this year, the information session will still be of benefit to you in planning your involvement with the competition in 2010 and showcasing resources available for you to use in poultry education this year.
The Junior Category is based on desk-top research. Teams of up to 5 students are required to research a suggested topic and present their findings as a data slideshow (PowerPoint presentation). The best two data slideshows from your school are then submitted to the competition for assessment by industry representatives against entries from other schools in South
The Senior Category is based on designing and conducting a trial or investigation if possible, involving a “hands on” experience with live poultry. The experiment or investigation may be carried out by a whole class with teams of up to 5 students required to present their results as a scientific report and poster combination. The best two reports and associated posters from your school are then submitted for assessment by industry representatives against entries from other schools in South Australia.
The Presentation and Careers Day has 2 primary aims:
The Presentation and Poultry Careers Day is open to all classes and students who participated in the Poultry in Schools competition, not just those students whose work has been entered in the competition (the best 2 entries from each class).
