2014 Annual Asheboro/Randolph Homebuilder's Competition

High school CTE students across the county participated in the annual homebuilder's competition Monday, April 28th at Southwestern Randolph High School. Students competed in Masonry I, Masonry II, Carpentry, and Birdhouse Construction. The annual event is sponsored by the Asheboro/Randolph Homebuilder's Association and provides high school students the opportunity to engage in industry-related projects in a friendly competition. The Association provides all materials and judges for the competitions. Upon completion of the projects, students enjoy a barbeque dinner, awards ceremony and live auction all put on by the Association. Students, parents, advisors and all other spectators are able to bid on the finished projects. Monies earned from the auction are used to help cover the cost of materials and to provide each high school with a $500 scholarship given by the Home Builder's Assn.
Many thanks to the Home Builder's Association for another great year of competition and to Southwestern Randolph High School for hosting the event!

"The single biggest problem in communication is the
illusion that it has taken place." -- George Bernard Shaw
While some students think of talking as communicating, you communicate in many ways: by listening, writing, speaking, and by non-verbal behaviors. Communication skills are at home or school when you answer a phone, ask a question, offer an opinion, smile at someone, demonstrate confidence, dress appropriately, write an email, and even when you remain silent.

Think before you speak or write. Using just any words won't do.
  - Be yourself. You lose your confidence when you try to be someone you're not.
  - Choose descriptive words to communicate what you mean.
  - Leave out techno-speak when talking with non-technology listeners.

Learn by listening.
Even though you hear, you may not be listening.
- Try to sense the mood and motivation of the speaker to interpret a message fully.
  - Concentrate on what is being said and block out distractions.
  - Avoid evaluating what you hear until the speaker is finished.

Avoid negative comments.
Don't hear an insult or negative comment when none is intended.
- Remove confrontational words from all communications.
  - Use "you" for positive comments and "I" or "we" for negative messages.

Write and rewrite. The finest writers and speakers revise six or more times until the final version is right.
