Volunteer

  • A HUGE thank you to our fabulous group of volunteers! 
    We sincerely appreciate your support of the students in Madera County!

    Mark your calendars now!
    The Academic Decathlon will need volunteers to help at next year's events on January 24, 2020 and February 1, 2020.  Check back this summer to register or contact Kristi Winter at (559) 662-3873 to be a speech and/or interview judge!  The event will need more than 85 volunteers.

    Speech Judge
    Speech judges needed on Saturday, February 1, 2020.

    Each student is required to give a 4 minute prepared speech and 2 minute impromptu speech.  Each student will deliver these speeches in front of three volunteers.  The speech judges will then score the student in different areas based on how they feel the student did.  A brief orientation will be given before the event begins.

    Interview Judge
    Interview judges needed on Friday, January 24, 2020.

    Each student is required to interview in front of a panel of three interviewers.  Students will begin with a brief self-introduction and then be asked a series of questions based on Decathlon guidelines.  The interview judges will then score the student in different areas based on how they feel the student did.  A brief orientation will be given before the event begins.
