Judging competitive events requires only a half-day time commitment, and you will assist high school students as they work toward successful careers. These students have worked all year to prepare for their competitions both inside and outside of the classroom, and have personally raised the funds to attend the conference where their skills will be evaluated by you. It's easy to judge. Registered judges receive detailed information and a thorough judge orientation is held on site before competition begins. People who have judged before thoroughly enjoyed their experience and want to return to judge again.

“Please sign me up for the upcoming DECA conference. I had the opportunity to represent the grocery (retail) industry several years ago. I was, to say the least, very impressed with the program and the professional job that DECA does preparing its participants for the retail and marketing fields...”

— Dan Magruder, District Manager, Smart & Final.

Make an Impact!

As a judge, you will participate in role-play activities during which students will act out their solutions to real business world situations. You will then evaluate the students' performances using a brief, easy to complete evaluation form.

When you volunteer to judge a DECA event, you are aiding bright and motivated students in having an educational experience of a lifetime. As a DECA Judge, you will use your background in business, entrepreneurship, marketing, management and life to evaluate students’ demonstration of marketing and business skills and knowledge.
