Volunteers for the 2021 Academic Decathlon City Championship

The Annual Academic Decathlon is a nationwide competition that promotes academic excellence through teamwork. Students of all achievement levels are tested on various subjects, such as Art, Economics, Music, Language Arts and Literature, Mathematics, Science, Social Science. We also include proficiency in Speech, Interview, and Essay writing. Students receive training and coaching throughout the school year in preparation to compete on a citywide and national stage. The specific content varies from year to year and is determined by the United States Academic Decathlon (USAD) Board of Directors. The 2020 topic is The Cold War

To ensure the safety of everyone and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the competition and volunteer roles have adopted a virtual format. This year, we are in need of Interview and Speech Judges for the 2021 Academic Decathlon City Championship on Saturday, February 20, 2021. We are in need of 40 speech judges and 40 interview judges for the City Championship. We would greatly appreciate your help in ensuring that we have a successful competition this year. It’s a great way to connect with students and support months of hard work. Confirmed volunteers will receive information regarding roles and responsibilities as well as training on Friday, February 5th.

Types of Duties: Interview Judge: 8am - 10:30am, Speech Judge: 11am- 1:30pm
