How to get a barista job?

There is a coffee shop in my small town that is hiring I believe it is locally owned. I have to drop off my resume during business hours. How do I make a good first impression. Should I add the award I won for culinary? Should I add the experiences and work I did in a culinary kitchen and volunteer work even though I think it would apply for a kitchen or fast food job not a coffee house. Training can be provided everyone who goes there says its better than Starbucks even if I got the job how can I avoid screwing up? And I am 18
