Academic Decathlon is a countywide student event for grades 9 through 12. It is part of the National Academic Decathlon competition. Schools field teams of up to nine members divided by thirds into Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity. Students compete in a series of 10 academic events including written examinations, speech, interview and Super Quiz. The winner in Tulare County competes at the state level; the state winner competes at the national level.
For this event we are looking for volunteers to serve as judges. As an Academic Decathlon Judge you will either be assigned as an Interview or Speech Judge. You will be placed on a panel with other community members to interview students (similar to a job interview) or listen to student speeches and evaluate them using guidelines and scoring forms provided. All judges attend a brief orientation on the morning of the event.
