Judges Needed for DECA Marketing Competitive Events Conference
Subject: DECA Marketing Competitive Events Conference
Cox Mill High School
Wednesday November 20. 2019
North Carolina DECA is an association of high school students enrolled in the Marketing Education program. Through classroom learning, on-the-job training and experience in DECA, students in our program learn marketing, management and entrepreneurial skills. Each year, students from across our area come together for a series of competitive events, which are evaluated by business and industry professionals. We expect 550 students to compete in this year’s events and we need a minimum of 80 business and industry professionals to serve as judges. We would like you to be an integral part of our conference by participating as a judge.
We ask business leaders in our community to set aside a few hours to judge students in realistic role-play situations. The role-play is a common situation that could arise on the job at any time. This could include human relations problem, a sales demonstration, a job interview, presentation of innovative idea to increase business, or other business situations. The judge’s role is to play a customer, fellow employee or supervisor one-on-one with the marketing students. After the role-play has ended, the judge will evaluate the student based on how well the participant handled the situation. Training will be provided.
If you can contribute a few hours from your busy schedule, please complete the online registration at. Complete this http://bit.ly/DECAjudge2019 form on line by November 11, 2019. You may still enter your information past the due date since we are still in dire need of volunteers. Please share with anyone else who may be interested in judging.
We ask that you arrive at Cox Mill High School by 3:30 pm on Wednesday November 20 by 3:15 pm. Cox Mill High School’s address is 1355 Cos Mill Road, Concord NC 28027. (close to Concord Mills). The competition should conclude by 6:00 pm.
I hope you choose to be a part of this educational and valuable student conference. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
