Before the end of March, you need to send to us your ‘Snapshot Project’ which will detail all the work you have done for WOHAA.
Your Snapshot Project can be presented in many forms – it might be a scrapbook, film, slideshow, video diary, song or rap.
As of 2016-17, the criteria for assessing our WOHAA snapshot projects has changed, and been upgraded to fit the 6 key WOHAA skills of Leadership, Project Management, Communication, Creativity, Social Responsibility and Self-Development. (To see more on the WOHAA skills, click here.)
To do your best in WOHAA, you will need to provide us with EVIDENCE in your snapshot project to prove to us everything that you have done. Below, you can find some ideas for what you can include as evidence in each category.
