  5. Check the box beside the classes or groups you want to select. If you like, click the arrow to expand the class or group and select individual students. Then click next.
  6. You'll then have the option to customize the competition skills. Select the students you want to set skills for then click set skills at the bottom of the screen. 
  7. When you're happy with the set skills, click next
