We came up with this at our first lock-in 3 years ago and it is one of our most requested events!
We ask the students to make teams of 4. We write down topics on slips of paper, the topics are folded and placed in a "Hat". A team representative picks a topic by drawing from the hat, they pick it they own it - no switching. Each topic is assigned a number. We typically gather at 5:30p and eat at 7p, students are given until 7p to produce their 5 minute skit. After dinner numbers are drawn from the hat to determine the order that the teams perform. After all the teams have performed the judges write down their vote for the winning team number, votes are counted and a winner announced. We play for $10 gift cards - usually to a local taco resturant - very popular! We also video and post on youtube which we put on our facebook group page.
Funny thing, the students that thought it was a dumb idea are the ones who got into it the most.

I have a group of youth mentors who really are involved with our group's managment, we always have a meeting in advance and brain storm topics - a lot of fun in its self! Some of the topics we've used over the years include: "what dogs say to each other in pet stores/shelters" "what girls precive the boys talk about in the locker room and what boys precive girls talk about in the locker room" "what really happens in the teacher's lounge" - just a few examples. We caution the groups (teens)to keep it PG which they have always done. We try to use topics that touch on things like bullying and life expiriences - the groups talk and give their own thoughts on these topics while participating in a fun team building excercise.
This past January we collected money (about $300)and invited the school groups (sports teams, student gov. ect.) to each enter a team for a chance to win the money (which would go toward that groups fund raising efforts) - Huge Success! the middle school girls swim team won - bought new swim suits - we had some city/county officials judge, lots of fun and brought awareness to what our group is all about. We are glad you like our idea, hope it works out for your group(s)
