Be A Judge

Each year, Michigan DECA depends upon support from our community members to assist us by serving as competitive event judges to help evaluate marketing and customer relations skills of our students that will be competing in the District and State Conferences. During the competition, the high school students will apply their knowledge of entrepreneurship, marketing, merchandising and management in practical real world situations.
DECA members must be out of high school for three years before being eligible to serve as a judge.
