STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC LUSK

The Amazing Shake is a competition that places an emphasis on teaching grade school students a variety of professional conduct skills, like manners, discipline and respect. Over a course of time, students learn the nuances of professional interaction, as they are taught skills such as how to give a proper handshake, conversational skills, how to give a successful interview and how to remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare the students so that they can properly present themselves for opportunities today and for the future.

Each year, multiple Rutherford County Schools host a school level Amazing Shake competition. The winners of this year’s bouts made it to the next county-wide round, sponsored by the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce and Rutherford Works.

The reception, which also served as the final competition, included the 10 finalists – where they were evaluated on their abilities to network and “work the room.”
