<p>Hey guys. I'm a sophomore, and I'm trying to find a new extra curricular. I know it's pretty late in the game for that, but I NEED something else. I want to do something where I can participate in competitions. This is what I have come up with so far:</p>

<li>Mu Alpha Theta</li>
<li>Model UN</li>
<li>Are there piano competitions?</li>
<li>Are there Spanish competitions? I know there's Chinese competitions... my friend went to one today.</li>

<p>What else? Are there cooking competitions?</p>

<p>there are competitions for almost anything you can think of. Even making chicken noises. If you can't find it, you probably aren't looking hard enough.</p>



<p>going crazy</p>

<p>yes, there are. just google it or ask a friend.</p>

<p>The only piano competition I know is International Eastern piano competition.</p>

<p>why do you need something else?</p>

<p>There are math/science competitions. Are you REALLY good at math and/or science?</p>

<p>Model UN is incredibly fun, but it isnt exactly a competition. Of course, if you do an amazing job during the forum, you could win an award for best speaker etc. </p>

<p>Sports, well, it is a bit late for that unless you are really good at something. Or you have to find a place where they except people of all levels, though then, the awards aren't as meaningful. </p>

<p>It doesn't even necessarily have to be competitions. By picking up dance, you can participate in performances. </p>

<p>Cooking competitions is stupid, no offense, but if you are doing this to impress colleges, it wont get you anywhere. </p>

<p>Ask your piano teacher if she knows of any places where you can compete or even just participate in the performances. </p>

<p>Something you should be aware of, is that no matter where you start, keep in mind that there is a chance you wont get the award just like that :P </p>

<p>I'd say go for MUN and Debate. They are incredibly fun and also a good score with any colleges.</p>

<p>I recommend Model UN. It is so much fun and an amazing opportunity to meet new awesome people. The other ones I am not really sure about. Just do something that YOU enjoy, not that you think colleges will enjoy seeing on your application.</p>
