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?
Orange County Academic Decathlon (OCAD) needs your support. This premiere academic competition for high school students relies heavily on community members volunteering their time, professionalism, and care to serve as judges and proctors for its 2018 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 an morning orientation on event day.
The OCAD program is uniquely designed to challenge and engage students of all varying academic abilities. Teams are comprised of nine students from each high school - 3 "A" students, 3 "B" students, and 3 "C" students who compete in a series of ten academic events.
This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity which typically leaves volunteers feeling inspired by the capable, motivated, and articulate high school students in our community.
