The word contest (or competition) stirs an enormous amount of emotion. Some relish the excitement, while others want to avoid it at all costs. However you feel about competition, it is a fact of life.

Youth compete in speech, DECA, music, sports, and of course, 4-H. But competition does not end with graduation. Youth also compete for scholarships and college acceptance, while adults are in competition for jobs, promotions, marketing and sales.
