You can help the Orange County Academic Decathlon (OCAD) make a difference!
Each year OCAD relies on the kindness of over 150 community members volunteering their time and talent to positively impact student lives - just by listening to and evaluating speeches or conducting interviews.
With One Day of Service you help to create the space for our students to pursue their academic endeavors, build their communication skills, and engage with the community around them.
You make a difference in helping OCAD to achieve its mission to inspire academic excellence and build 21st century skills that prepare our students for college, career, and beyond.
Serving our students as a judge will be impactful, rewarding, and simple to achieve. If you enjoy being inspired by young people and working with other community members on a team, register as a judge and commit to One Day of Service with OCAD in 2019!

Orange County Academic Decathlon (OCAD) promotes academic excellence through a multi-discipline curriculum that complements state standards. The OCAD competition offers awards, scholarships, and recognition for each student's achievement and participation, as a team and individually. The program encourages community involvement through financial contributions and volunteer opportunities.
The Academic Decathlon is the premiere scholastic competition in the United States. It is a 10 event competition for high school students. Teams consist of nine students: three "A", three "B", and three "C" students. Subjects include math, science, social science, literature, art, economics, and music. Participants take written tests, write an essay, deliver two speeches, and participate in an interview. The curriculum topic changes each year and is set by the US Academic Decathlon.
In Orange County, more than 40 high schools and over 500 students compete in this annual competition. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to serve as judges and test proctors for the events.
