Participation & Leadership Level 3

0 Points

In the Participation & Leadership Level 3 badge, participants shift their focus to leadership activities.

To earn this badge, participants will assemble a portfolio of evidence of their leadership work and upload for review.  To guide the portfolio, participants should provide evidence of their choosing for each of the four items below.

Portfolios will be evaluated by experienced FRC adult members using a rubric-based evaluation tool.  Participants will receive feedback if any portion needs to have more detail or evidence.  The participant can compile new evidence and have the portfolio re-evaluated.

After earning this badge, the participant can choose to display the badge on the Open Badges infrastructure including the portfolio information.
