During the retreat, you will be tasked with giving a presentation on something you know a lot about. You can present on anything, as long as it can be accomplished within the given rubric. Previous topics have been "How to make Rice Balls," "How to Write a Good Character," "Puppeteering," "Orca Whales," and many others. These presentations on Something You Know a Lot About are referred to as SYKALAs and you will need to prepare one before the retreat.
Please note that you will need to turn in something at retreat check-in which demonstrates that you have already prepared your presentation, such as a hard copy outline of your presentation or PowerPoint slides.
Here are some examples of past SYKALA Winners:
