The written report is important. It constitutes 2/3 of the total score, so getting each possible point is incredibly important. These events, with the exception of Local Chapter Annual Business Report, will have a preliminary performance for all competitors, so be sure to look at the tips for prepared performances. Some report tips include:
1.) Review the event description and requirements. What is the purpose of the report?
2.) Review the report rating sheet. Does the report cover all the required content?
3.) Be unique. Do not just take last years report and change names and dates.
4.) Proofread. You cannot have your report read too many times to catch both spelling and grammatical errors.
5.) Use graphics. While the overwhelming majority should be text, you can be creative in the use of pictures and other graphics.
