Mid-December, 2022 - January, 2023 - DECA Competition, Cedar Ridge High School

Sara Parriott, the DECA advisor at Cedar Ridge High School and the Texas DECA District 5 Director, is reaching out to ask if you would be willing to serve as a judge for DECA our Competition this year. The DECA District 5 Career Development Conference will be held at Cedar Ridge High School in Round Rock, Texas, on Saturday, January 28, 2023.

We are projecting that we will have 1300+ students competing and need to have 100+ judges available.  Your assignment will be fully explained to you, and it is expected that we will have you judge 8-15 presentations. We will get started around 7 a.m. with the goal of being finished around 1 p.m.

If you would be interested or know anyone else that may be interested in judging this year please fill out the Judges Form (be sure to select District 5 in the dropdown for District Selection and of course, if you are available to help in other districts you can fill out the form multiple times). I will be in contact closer to January 28th to confirm and give you more information about the event. 

Please note that even if you cannot attend the event on January 28, we need judges to review our prepared entries ahead of time during the December 19-January 6 time frame. Please do me a favor and forward this email to anyone else that you think would be interested in serving as a DECA Judge. And of course, let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for considering being a judge. Please contact Ms. Parriott at for more information.
