Business Experts Needed To Judge High School Competition

By on December 6, 2017

Verona High School’s chapter of the Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) has been reinstated this year and it needs the community’s help with a competition it will be participating in in January.

As part of its mission of educating students for business careers in marketing, business management and administration, finance, and hospitality and tourism, DECA runs state and local competitions for high school and college students. They are asked to prepare business plans, marketing plans and other challenges to a group of judges to demonstrate their creativity and critical thinking.

Each school participating in a DECA competition is responsible for supplying judges. So VHS’ DECA Chapter is recruiting experts in the field of marketing, finance, hospitality and management to serve on Thursday, January 4, in the competition, which will take place at Kean University in Union. ​The day begins at 8 a.m. and should end around 2:30 p.m. The snow date for the event is Thursday, January 11.

This sample judging sheet for the Apparel & Accessories category is an example of what you would encounter as a judge. “Serving as a judge is a great way to see how our future leaders and entrepreneurs are developing in high school and to give back to the community,” says Angela M. Salisbury, a business education teacher at VHS.
