Conference Judging

Are you interested in helping prepare today’s emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management? DECA has nearly 60 competitive events, from prepared business plans and market research events to role-plays and case studies. All DECA events are designed at a high school level and are structured so that professionals from a variety of backgrounds can successfully judge the event. With of your support and guidance, we are able to better prepare our students to be college and career ready in an ever-changing economy and post-secondary landscape. This event requires 150 business professional volunteers annually. People who have judged before thoroughly enjoyed their experience and want to return to judge again. In the words of one judge:

“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
