  • Stage management
  • Hair and Make-up

Specific tasks for each of these categories are not revealed until the team competes.

Schools must sign up for a start time for Tech Olympics.

Tech Portfolios

Students can enter their technical and/or design portfolios for review by professionals at the competition and receive a written and verbal evaluation. Each school is allowed 3 entries.

Students will submit a PDF version of their portfolio to the Tech Competition which will then be uploaded to a website. Students’ work will be displayed digitally throughout the competition as well as during their interviews.

The PDFs must be a portfolio of work showing the student’s design/technical skills. It should include a resume, and any pertinent draftings, renderings, models, photos, sketches, and research designs. Please include high resolution images of three-dimensional items (i.e. costumes, models, etc.) including multiple angles as there will be no physical displays or spaces available.

By entering the Portfolio Presentation Competition students acknowledge that their portfolios may be used during a Tech Portfolio Workshop.

Students will sign up for a time to present their portfolio to the panel of judges. This interview does not affect the portfolio’s score.
