Give Youth a Voice! Be a Speech or Interview Judge for the Orange County Academic Decathlon (OCAD)!
Do you want to help hard-working and dedicated teens achieve their scholastic goals? Do you want to utilize your personal and professional skills in a fast-paced and engaging volunteer opportunity?
OCAD needs your support. This premiere academic competition uniquely designed for high school students of all academic abilities relies heavily on community members volunteering their time, professionalism, and care to serve as judges and proctors for its 2017 events.
Speech judges and Interview judges are needed for the annual OCAD competition. Judges serve on a team of two to four judges, and evaluate student speeches or interviews using guidelines and scoring sheets provided. All judges attend a morning orientation on event day. Time commitment: 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Support Orange County Youth.
Support Academic Excellence.
Support Academic Decathlon.
This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity which typically leaves volunteers feeling inspired by the capable, motivated, and articulate high school students in our community.
If you are interested in being part of this spirited and rigorous event competition, please register above!
Volunteers should be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate. Parents who volunteer will not be placed in the same area as their child. Registered volunteers will be emailed an information packet and map two weeks prior to the event.
It is very important that all volunteers arrive promptly on competition day. If a volunteer becomes unavailable, it is critical that the Project Liaison be contacted prior to the competition day to avoid incomplete judging teams. A missing volunteer can delay the start of the competition for our students. For additional information, please contact Ron Segundo at 714-966-4316 or email@example.com.
